Global hybrid packaging supplier Berlin Packaging has expanded its portfolio in Europe by acquiring glass packaging decorator StyleGlass.

Based in Thessaloniki, Greece, StyleGlass specialises in decorating glass packaging for the food, beverage, beauty and pharmaceutical end markets.

The company has been offering decoration techniques such as glassware painting and printing for more than 30 years.

The addition of StyleGlass is intended to strengthen Berlin Packaging’s expertise in decoration and expand its integrated service offering.

The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Berlin Packaging MED CEO Elias Valavanis said: “The acquisition strengthens the design and innovation capabilities we offer to our customers, one of the key pillars of our hybrid packaging supplier approach.

“Joining our creative and technical forces will bring more value than ever to our customers.”

Following this acquisition, Berlin Packaging is integrating Styleglass into its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) division.

The company will also retain all of Styleglass’ employees and production locations as part of the acquisition.

StyleGlass CEO Christos Charizonas said: “We share many common values with Berlin Packaging, such as a passion for creativity and a willingness to grow and to give our clients beautiful and high-quality packaging that exceeds their expectations.”

StyleGlass is the fifth acquisition for Berlin Packaging in the EMEA region so far this year, as well as the company’s eighth acquisition worldwide since January.

Last month, the company purchased family-owned glass packaging provider European Packaging Solutions (EPS).

Based in Albania, EPS offers a range of standard and tailored glass packaging solutions, with 30 private moulds exclusively for customers.

The company has offices in Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and Albania.

In June this year, Berlin Packaging also acquired Vidrierías Pérez Campos, a Spanish company that supplies glass packaging for the olive oil, home fragrance and spirits markets.
