Plastic caps and closures manufacturer United Caps is set to acquire the plastic closures division of Closures4you.

The acquisition will include the 28mm caps for reusable glass bottles and disposable PET bottles.

United Caps CEO Benoît Henckes said: “With this strategic step, United Caps is driving forward the modernisation of its product portfolio.

“In accordance with the principle of ‘less is more’, we are working to restrict product complexity within our portfolio as much as possible while still offering first class closures for all PET and glass bottles.”

“United Caps is driving forward the modernisation of its product portfolio.”

The takeover is expected to support the company’s comprehensive growth strategy, as well as ensure future market supply from its Schwerin facility.

Closures4you will continue to manufacture its products until March next year to ensure a smooth transition of customers to the United Caps without disrupting supply.

Closures4you’s parent company Cups4you is headquartered in Oss, the Netherlands.

The company focuses on the production and distribution of thin-wall injection moulded packaging with a capacity of 100ml to 2,500ml for the food industry.

In June, United Caps acquired cap and closure manufacturer Dewit Plastics.

Luxembourg-based United Caps develops and manufactures high-performance and closure systems.

It operates multiple production sites situated in various European countries, including Belgium, Germany, France, Ireland, Spain and Hungary.

Last year, the company reported sales of nearly €131m.
