Netherlands-based corrugated packaging manufacturer De Jong Packaging Holding (DJV) has acquired a majority shareholding in eCorrugated.
The partnership is expected to help eCorrugated to achieve its aim to become one of the UK’s largest independent, lowest cost, and sustainable corrugated manufacturer.
DJV supplies corrugated packaging to Benelux, Germany, France, and the UK. It has production sites in the Netherlands and Germany.
The company’s production site in De Lier, Netherlands is ‘the largest corrugated box plant in Europe’.
eCorrugated managing director Paul Lavelle said: “I am delighted that we have come together with De Jong Packaging, their business philosophy and our shared values will ensure our common goals are achieved.
“From my first meeting with Henk De Jong the owner of De Jong Packaging and Ad Smit CEO, it was clear that we would develop a trusting relationship that would be to the benefit of all our valued customers and also both parties.”
Established in 2011, eCorrugated is an independent manufacturer of high-volume corrugated packaging. It caters to customers across the UK and Ireland.
Following the partnership, eCorrugated will continue to operate under the same name.
De Jong Packaging CEO Ad Smit said: “We are extremely happy to have come together with a company such as eCorrugated.
“We immediately recognised their total commitment to the highest level of customer service which is aligned to the same principles of De Jong Packaging. We are looking forward to an exciting future in the UK and Irish markets.”
