Canadian flexible packaging supplier TC Transcontinental has acquired US-based firm Multifilm Packaging for an undisclosed price.

Multifilm Packaging president Chris Rogers said: “We are truly proud to join TC Transcontinental, a large corporation with a 42-year history and track record of success.”

“This transaction allows us to enter new high-end confectionery packaging niches and to bolster our offering in this market.”

TC Transcontinental president and chief executive officer François Olivier added: “The acquisition of Multifilm Packaging Corporation is aligned with our growth strategy for the packaging division and presents tremendous opportunities.
