“The addition of the equipment and know-how allows us to efficiently produce and customise corrugated packaging."

Supremex president and CEO Stewart Emerson said: “Through this strategic acquisition we gain not only a strong, vibrant and growing consumer packaging business with a positive outlook, we add complementary capabilities, cross-selling opportunities and vertical integration potential.
