Flexible packaging firm ProAmpac has acquired Gateway Packaging Company, a US-based pet food packaging manufacturer and technical products company.

Flexible packaging firm ProAmpac has acquired Gateway Packaging Company, a US-based pet food packaging manufacturer and technical products company.

Gateway’s product portfolio includes multi-wall bags, stand-up pouches, quad-seal bags, box pouches, roll stock, treat bags and hybrid bags. The company also sells products to the personal care and institutional markets.

ProAmpac CEO Greg Tucker said: “The acquisition of Gateway expands our product offering with the addition of multi-wall bags while also increasing our manufacturing capacity of several pouch formats. Gateway will allow us to deliver even more value and services to our customers.”

“Gateway’s talented team, multi-wall bag converting expertise, and presence in pet and institutional markets will add to ProAmpac’s competencies and existing customer base.”

Following the acquisition, the company will employ around 3,700 people and operate 33 sites globally.
