This is the 14th acquisition that Tekni-Plex has completed over the last five years as a part of its strategy to build its business through acquisitions and strategic add-ons.

Tekni-Plex president and chief executive officer Paul Young said: “We continue to drive our strategy by growing our business organically and through acquisitions.

“The acquisition of MMC allows us to bring an expanded array of solutions to the caps and closure packaging segment, as well as other markets.

“With their innovative products and excellent manufacturing capabilities, as well as a very strong management team, we will be able to bring even more solutions to our customer base.”
