Four major packaging companies, including rigid packaging suppliers BWAY and Mauser Group, are forming a new sustainable company.
The other two companies involved in the merger include National Container Group (NCG) and Industrial Container Services (ICS).
Known as Mauser Packaging Solutions, the combined entity brings together innovation of BWAY and Mauser Group with the global recollection and reconditioning capabilities of NCG and ICS.
The newly formed company will focus on delivering products and services across the entire packaging lifecycle for global customers.
It will provide large and small metal, plastic, fibre and hybrid packaging to consumers in several industries, including food, beverage, personal care and pharmaceuticals to chemicals, petrochemicals, agrochemicals, and paints.
Mauser Packaging Solutions CEO Ken Roessler said: “When developing our growth strategy, we recognised that customers were looking for a global partner to deliver sustainable packaging solutions and close the loop from purchase to reuse.
“For the first time, businesses have a single partner who can deliver an industry-leading portfolio of products and services of the highest quality and widest range around the world.
“And our team members are the best in the industry – passionate, innovative and committed to solving complex customer challenges and building lifelong relationships based on service.”
The company will feature a new tagline ‘Redefining Sustainability’ and will have capabilities across all phases of the packaging process.
The sustainable solutions offered by Mauser Packaging Solutions include new packaging made from recycled content and reconditioned containers. The firm offers products such as intermediate bulk containers, cans, pails, bottles, and drums.
It also offers the collection of empty packaging, reconditioning solutions, fleet management, and customised services.
Headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois, the company has more than 11,000 employees across the globe.
Mauser Packaging Solutions is affiliated to US-based investment firm Stone Canyon Industries and has consolidated revenue of $4bn.
