Consolidated Container Company (CCC) subsidiary Reid Canada has completed the acquisition of two packaging firms, Polybottle Group and Humberline Packaging, from ABC Group.

Polybottle and Humberline manufacture plastic bottles for food, beverage, automotive, industrial, and speciality chemical industries. The companies have manufacturing plants located in Toronto, Vancouver, and Edmonton, in Canada.

The deal follows the company’s recent acquisition of DeltaPac in Montreal during the second quarter and will serve as a base for the launch of its Dura-Lite packaging line for food, beverage, and industrial markets.

Consolidated Container president and CEO Sean R Fallmann said: “We welcome the employees of Polybottle and Humberline into the CCC family. These companies have great leadership teams and a strong reputation for consistently providing quality products and excellent customer service.

“This acquisition is another step in CCC’s North American growth strategy, in which we combine strategic asset acquisitions with new innovative products to better meet our customers’ needs.”

“These companies have great leadership teams and a strong reputation for consistently providing quality products and excellent customer service.”

The company is offering Dura-Lite containers in gallon, half-gallon, quart, and industrial round gallon sizes. The industrial gallon bottles are compatible with multiple neck finishes and are designed for the household cleaner, cooking oil, and beverage fill lines.

It has shipped more than 300 million Dura-Lite bottles to various beverage manufacturers across the US.

Fallmann added: “With this strong foundation in place, we are very excited at the opportunity to expand our operations in Canada and introduce our innovative Dura-Lite family of bottles to new customers.”

CCC manufactures rigid-plastic packaging solutions such as mid and short-run products to serve various industries, including dairy, household chemicals, water, beverage and juice segments.
