Response from the companies

Go-Pak founder Simon Lawley said: “Go-Pak has found the perfect home in joining together with SCG Packaging. Go-Pak has achieved so much as an independently-owned business over the past 11 years. It has been a great journey so far, and our growth strategy and potential will continue to flourish as part of the SCG family. Not only does this make Go-Pak stronger, but it will also allow the business to maximise its full potential as part of SCG Packaging.”

Go-Pak Managing Director Adam Anderson said: “Joining the SCG family of businesses is a very exciting prospect for Go-Pak. Not only does this mean a continuation of the great service for our customers, but being part of such a large integrated packaging group will enable us to offer further international support and a wider product range for our current and future customers in the UK, Europe and US.”

SCGP chief executive Wichan Jitpukee said: “We are extremely pleased to collaborate with Go-Pak, our new partner with whom we look forward to working together to grow in the European market as well as expand the business in the United States, as we plan to build upon this impressive platform and strong B2B2C focus. We welcome their knowledge, flexibility and creativity to our business.”
