Private equity firm Quad-C Management has invested in rigid container and life sciences packaging distributor Inmark Packaging.
The deal, structured as an owner-operator recapitalisation, allows Inmark’s management to retain a significant ownership in the business.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Inmark Packaging provides packaging solutions with locations in North America, Europe and Asia. It operates out of six locations in the US, one in Singapore and one in the UK.
Founded in 1975, Inmark distributes rigid container packaging including glass, plastic and metal containers for the food, beverage, cosmetic, chemical and coatings industries.
It also designs and distributes life sciences packaging solutions for specimen transport, temperature-controlled and dangerous goods applications.
Inmark also provides online dangerous goods regulatory compliance training.
Inmark CEO David Oyler said: "After vetting numerous potential partners, we selected Quad-C due to their industry expertise, as well as their historical success in partnering with owner-operators like myself.
"We have completed three acquisitions in the past three years, and we felt bringing on a partner like Quad-C, with substantial capital, industry and M&A expertise, would allow us to accelerate growth further."
Quad-C also acquired other companies in the packaging sector that include Technimark, which provides injection moulded solutions for consumer packaging, healthcare and speciality industrial end markets.
