A report by Packaging News (PKN) quoted Worthington as saying: “Lionel and I, and the rest of the team, are excited about this opportunity and what it means for our combined customer base.
“We are seeing demand increase for our products, especially in the fresh produce space, and we are delighted that we can now expand our portfolio and increase our footprint in the Australian market.”
The strong sales force of ACP is projected to complement Filton’s technological expertise, Worthington told PKN.
Following this acquisition, Worthington confirmed that ACP’s team members will now become a part of Filton Packaging to ensure a “seamless transition”.
In addition, both the companies will continue to operate from their respective sites in Melbourne, Victoria, including ACP’s facility in Dandenong, and Filton’s plant in Hallam.
Worthington told PKN that ACP’s sites will operate under Filton Packaging’s name, with “possible integration of sites in the pipeline”.
