Rohrer buys specialty printing and thermoforming firm Jay Packaging

The addition of Jay Packaging will help advance Rohrer’s eco-friendly packaging goals.

Consumer packaging solutions provider Rohrer has completed the acquisition of specialty printing and thermoforming group, Jay Packaging.

Based in Warwick, Rhode Island, Jay Packaging provides printing, folding cartons, and plastic components across the US northeast region.

The company provides niche packaging for various sectors including beauty, home, and health markets.

Through this integration, both the companies will complement their capabilities in high-end printing and decorating, folded carton packaging carded blister, and thermoformed.

Rohrer Corporation CEO Steve Wirrig said: “Jay Packaging Group is an innovative company with talented employees. It’s exciting to expand our operations to the East Coast and invest in the people, plants, and profitability of both businesses.

“Together, we can provide our customers with best of both worlds – unbeatable packaging solutions through Rohrer’s ezCombo programmes and custom printing and packaging options through Jay Packaging Group.”
