US-based labelling company Brook + Whittle has acquired flexible packaging company Diamond Flexible Packaging for an undisclosed sum.
Based in Northbrook, Illinois, Diamond supplies customised printed bags and pouches for a broad range of end markets, including food, cosmetics, nutrition, beverage and healthcare.
The acquisition is intended to enhance Brook + Whittle’s wide web printing capabilities and fuel the company’s growth in its main strategic markets.
Brook + Whittle CEO Mark Pollard said: “Diamond is an ideal fit into our network and has great potential for continued growth.
“They have an excellent track record of great service and long-standing customer relationships, some of which have spanned over five decades.”
Brook + Whittle operation senior vice-president Jeremy Letterman said: “The addition of five in-house pouch lines and bag making capabilities pushes us into new markets and positions us to deliver custom flexible packaging at industry-leading lead-times.
“This acquisition rounds out our offering for customers to be a trusted one-stop-shop for all their printing and packaging needs.”
Diamond Flexible Packaging claims to offer flexible packaging products that meet and exceed customer expectations, having been in operation for more than 90 years.
Diamond Flexible Packaging general manager Tim Morgan said: “We are eager for this new chapter with Brook + Whittle and look forward to our continued success for another 90 years.
“Their broad customer base, experience in wide web printing and commitment to sustainability were huge driving factors in our decision to sell to Brook + Whittle.”
Brook + Whittle provides pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging for customers in North America.
Earlier this year, the company agreed to acquire Paradigm Label, a custom label manufacturer based in California.
Paradigm Label focuses on supplying flexible packaging, pressure-sensitive labels and shrink sleeves, also working directly with companies to identify the most suitable label solutions for their purposes.
