Wasdell Group has expanded its business with the acquisition of medical device and pharmaceutical sectors packaging supplier Planned Packaging & Planned Packaging Films (PPF).

With more than 40 years of experience, Planned Packaging caters to medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies in the UK, Europe and the Americas.

The addition of PPF will transform Wasdell into a fully integrated supplier. The company has a client base within the life science and medical device sector.

Wasdell Group CEO Vincent Dunne said: “The acquisition of PPF allows the Wasdell Group to vertically integrate into a key commodity area, safeguarding supplies but also expanding our capabilities and product and service offerings.”

Planned Packaging’s products, which include pre-made easy peel pouches, high barrier foil films and semi rigid materials for processing through thermoforming lines, comply with ISO 11607 / MDR requirements.

Additionally, it provides custom print services and offers advice on suitable packaging solution to its customers.

The company is also making new 100% recyclable and biodegradable options available.

All of Planned Packaging’s products are produced in an ISO 8 cleanroom environment.

Wasdell Group chairman Martin Tedham said: “Planned Packaging is a perfect fit due to its synergies within the existing Wasdell operations, a shared customer base, operating within the same sectors as well as a growing demand for the assembly and packaging of medical devices seen within Wasdell’s outsourced packaging services.

“Customers will benefit from expanded services and competitive prices and the integrations of Planned Packaging into our current operations will be a beneficial and advantageous one for all involved. We are pleased to welcome the Planned Packaging team to the Wasdell family and look forward to working alongside them.”
