US-based flexible packaging firm ProAmpac has acquired consumer and industrial multi-wall packaging solutions producer El Dorado Packaging.

El Dorado specialises in manufacturing customised paper-based packaging and printing solutions for the retail and industrial sectors.

El Dorado will operate from its existing facilities under the ProAmpac brand.

The addition of El Dorado will allow ProAmpac to expand its multi-wall bag product offering into the flour and food ingredients markets, as well as strengthening its paper packaging capabilities in industrial markets.
