C-P primarily focuses on the food industry and produces pouches, re-sealable packaging and shrink sleeves.

Speaking on the acquisition, C-P’s controlling shareholder First Atlantic Capital managing director Emilio S Pedroni said: "When we invested in C-P, we knew we wanted to achieve big things in flexible packaging, and acquiring MRI is the first step.

"It substantially increases the range and potential we bring to market.

"We’re particularly excited about the new technology in C-FiT, which is a no-heat shrink sleeve designed for single-serve-size bottles."

MRI will continue to operate under current management.
