Jiffy Packaging Europe is planning to offload its systems division to Germany-based flexible film and foam manufacturer Ripac for an undisclosed amount.

The divestment forms a part of the company’s strategy to focus on polyolefin foam and bubble film manufacturing in order to become a leader in that market.

The division being sold currently offers air cushion technology and foam-in-place systems.

"These investments signal our intention to grow and innovate with quality products for new markets."

As part of the acquisition, all systems employees will be transferred to Ripac and will continue to operate from their existing locations.

Since 2008, Jiffy Packaging and Ripac have been jointly working on the supply of film for the systems division.

Jiffy Packaging recently invested in additional foam capacity in Romania, Germany, Belgium and the UK, a move that will enable the company to cater to new markets.
