The acquisition is intended to boost Rohrer's printed folding carton capabilities.

US-based retail packaging designer and manufacturer Rohrer has taken over Coburn Carton Solutions, a company specialising in printing and converting folding cartons.

Coburn Carton Solutions produces printed folding cartons and point-of-purchase displays for the food, pharmaceutical, household goods and private label brands industries.

The acquisition is intended to add to Rohrer’s printed folding carton capabilities, including structural design, large-format printing, folding and glueing.

It is also expected to strengthen Coburn’s business and position it for additional investment, development and employment opportunities.

The financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Rohrer Corporation CEO Steve Wirrig said: “Coburn Carton Solutions is a great company with talented employees. We are excited to have them on board.

“Together, we can offer all of our customers unbeatable printed folding carton solutions through Rohrer’s ezCombo programmes and Coburn’s custom printing solutions.”

Rohrer plans to integrate Coburn’s folding carton capabilities into its broad range of paperboard packaging products for both new and existing customers and industries.

Rohrer Corporation executive vice-president Carmine Lombardi said: “Rohrer continues to innovate with sustainable packaging products like ecoCombo post-consumer recycled materials and our All-Paper Blister.

“Acquiring Coburn helps us expand the sustainable packaging solutions we offer to our customers.

“At the same time, Coburn customers will now enjoy a one-stop shop with Rohrer’s full suite of packaging solutions.”

Coburn Carton Solutions former owner Todd Zimmerman said: “I am immensely proud of the Coburn team, and the business we have built over many years.

“I am confident the integration of our business into Rohrer’s network will make both businesses stronger and position the Coburn operations for further investment, growth and job creation.”

Rohrer supplies high-visibility retail consumer packaging in the US and uses advanced manufacturing technologies to provide innovative retail packaging solutions.

In March, the company was acquired by US-based private equity firm Wellspring Capital Management for an undisclosed sum.
