ProAmpac, a flexible packaging and material science company, has announced the acquisition of North American recycled kraft paper producer UP Paper. 

Located in Manistique, Michigan, UP Paper produces 100% unbleached recycled kraft paper for packaging applications.  

The company, which was established in 2016, caters to customers in the e-commerce, foodservice and consumer retail markets. 

ProAmpac founder, vice-chair and CEO Greg Tucker said: “The UP Paper team has done an incredible job building this great business. We look forward to building on their existing relationships and production expertise to serve our customer base with a broader suite of sustainable packaging products.” 

The collaboration between UP Paper and ProAmpac is expected to harness their combined expertise in fibre and film-based materials science to develop environmentally friendly flexible packaging solutions.  

The financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed.
