The Spicers Group, a paper, packaging, and visual communication products supplier, has signed an agreement with Winson Group to acquire Australian packaging company Signet.  

The companies have not disclosed the financial details and other terms of the transaction. 

Signet offers a range of more than 5,500 packaging products, aiming to position itself as a one-stop shop for shipping consumables and e-commerce solutions, including protective packaging, cartons, and stretch films.  

The packaging company has a national footprint, with production and warehouse facilities located across major Australian cities such as Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Perth.

The acquisition of Signet, which has a revenue of approximately A$150m ($97.78m), is expected to make a significant contribution to boosting the Spicers Group’s regional scale.  

Under the terms of the latest deal, Signet will join the Spicers Group while continuing to operate as an independent entity.
