US-based Pro Mach has acquired Pacific Packaging Machinery, a filling and capping solutions provider, for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition will allow Pro Mach to provide improved solutions for the food, pharmaceutical, personal and home care, and chemical sectors.

As part of the deal, Pacific was integrated with Pro Mach’s filling and capping brands, Federal and Zalkin, as well as pharmaceutical filling and capping solutions from NJM Packaging.

"Their solutions complement our existing strengths in filling our customer’s rigid and flexible packages."

The deal has also created a new entity for filling and capping solutions with more than 15,000 installed machines.

Pacific Packaging’s management and team have also joined Pro Mach.

Pro Mach president and CEO Mark Anderson said: “Pacific Packaging and Pro Mach bring together a great deal of experience in manufacturing high-quality filling and capping solutions and supporting the world’s leading food, pharmaceutical, and consumer goods companies.

“Their solutions complement our existing strengths in filling our customer’s rigid and flexible packages and expand our ability to be a one-stop shop for integrated solutions across the entire packaging line.”

With the acquisition, the company further aims to boost its position as single-source provider of packaging equipment and integrated systems for the entire rotary, inline filling and capping line.

Pro Mach currently has more than 30 equipment brands and operations in North America, Mexico, Europe, the UAE, and China.

In August, the company purchased Canada-based packaging line engineering, integration, and productivity services and solutions provider Zarpac.
