“For the first time, we will have bag-converting capability, as well as PE-blown film extrusion. The acquisition supports our goal of expanding our offerings in the pharmaceutical and healthcare space.”

“The acquisition of Beyers Plastics allows us to expand our portfolio of cleanroom-produced pharmaceutical and medical flexible packaging products.”

In the past four years, Tekni-Plex has completed the acquisition of ten companies that offer plastic and rubber products, including Beyers Plastics, to further drive its growth.

Beyers Plastics general manager Johan Noelmans said: “We look forward to becoming part of Tekni-Plex’s global healthcare packaging presence.

“Our combined expertise and manufacturing capability will provide packaging solutions for more companies, as well as grow sales for our combined product lines.”
