TricorBraun president and CEO Court Carruthers said: “Continental Bottle Company and DiBro have been leaders in the UK packaging industry for decades.

“We are pleased to partner with these trusted companies—enabling us to offer new products and expanded supply chain options to customers—while investing in their continued growth.

“We are thrilled to welcome these outstanding teams to the TricorBraun family.”

Following the acquisition, TricorBraun will retain all CBC and DiBro’s team members and both companies will continue to operate from their existing locations.

CBC and DiBro will operate as separate, stand-alone businesses under the names Continental Bottle, a TricorBraun company, and DiBro, a TricorBraun company, with immediate effect.

CBC managing director and DiBro managing director Lee Emsden said: “Given the excellent reputation and long-standing customer and supplier relationships we’ve built over many years, finding the right partner for our next stage of growth was crucial.

“TricorBraun’s focus on team members and delivering for customers with a keen emphasis on growth makes it our ideal home.”

Last month, TricorBraun agreed to acquire Australian packaging provider PB Packaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro-Pac Packaging.

PB Packaging supplies plastic and glass packaging for the health, industrial, food and automotive industries.
