Hybrid packaging supplier Berlin Packaging has expanded its Canadian presence with the acquisition of packaging supplier Consolidated Bottle.

Established in 1910, Consolidated Bottle specialises in supplying innovative plastic, glass and metal containers and closures serving various sectors including personal care, pharmaceutical, cannabis, food, beverage and industrial.

The combined businesses are expected to offer even more packaging solutions and value-added services to their customers.

Financial details of the transaction remain undisclosed.

Berlin Packaging CEO and president Bill Hayes said: “Consolidated Bottle has an extraordinary history and shares our focus on quality, service and results for customers.

“We are extremely committed to the Canadian market and see tremendous growth opportunities for our employees, customers and suppliers.”

With the acquisition, the two companies can access Berlin Packaging’s design studio for custom packaging solutions and Consolidated Bottle’s injection moulding, decorating and shrink sleeving capabilities.

Following the acquisition, the merged company will be known as Consolidated Bottle Corporation, a Berlin Packaging company.

Berlin will retain all Consolidated Bottle employees and locations.

Consolidated Bottle CEO Jonathan Rutman said: “We are thrilled to partner with Berlin Packaging for our next chapter.

“Our team and our customer base have enjoyed phenomenal growth over the past several years, and we are confident that our shared future is bright with Berlin Packaging.”

Last month, Berlin Packaging purchased Netherlands-based supplier of glass packaging Vinkova.
