US-based hybrid packaging supplier Berlin Packaging has expanded its UK portfolio by acquiring Roma International.

Based in Suffolk, UK, Roma International supplies nail polish bottles, containers and lids for perfumes, skincare, aromatherapy and other personal care products. It also offers products for luxury brands and high-end customers.

Berlin Packaging Europe CEO Paolo Recrosio said: “The acquisition of Roma International will enable Berlin Packaging to further extend its range of packaging in the cosmetics and personal care sectors.

“I am also excited about the company’s industry knowledge and strong relationships with clients across the beauty sector, which will help create significant business opportunities for our group.”

The acquisition is part of Berlin Packaging’s commitment to offering packaging solutions in all segments of the market across Europe.

Roma International is the company’s 12th European acquisition since 2016.

The financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.

Roma International managing director Steve Excell said: “Becoming part of the Berlin Packaging group offers Roma International huge opportunities, and I know our employees, customers and suppliers will all thrive as a result.

“I am immensely proud of having led, nurtured and developed Roma International for 30 years, as well as bringing the next generation of my family into the business. I am thrilled to have secured this opportunity to combine my business with the world’s largest hybrid packaging supplier and all its resources and capabilities.”

Last month, Berlin Packaging announced it had acquired France-based packaging companies Sodis-Uhart and Audoubert.
