Packaging materials manufacturer Tekni-Plex has purchased three manufacturing facilities from Australian packaging company Amcor’s Flexible Packaging business unit for a cash consideration of $215m.

Announced in April this year, the transaction was dependent on the closing of the $6.8bn merger between Amcor and flexible packaging major Bemis, which was closed earlier this month.

The three facilities are located in Madison and Milwaukee in Wisconsin, US, and Ashland in Massachusetts, US.

The deal is the eleventh acquisition for Tekni-Plex in the past five years and is part of the company’s plans to expand its business though transformative acquisitions and strategic add-ons.

Tekni-Plex president and CEO Paul Young said: “The acquisition expands our complex packaging solution portfolio for medical device manufacturers, many of whom have been supplied by our Colorite, Natvar and Dunn medical products businesses for decades.

“The acquisition of these three plants also brings us 150 highly qualified and experienced employees who form the backbone of the business. We are happy to welcome them to the Tekni team of 3,000 strong across the world.”
