Private equity firm Wellspring Capital Management has merged portfolio companies Prolamina and Ampac to form a new flexible packaging company.

The merger coincides Wellspring’s acquisition of Ampac, which has 13 manufacturing centres in North America, Europe and Asia.

The combined company will have more than 2,000 employees and 16 facilities across the world where it will manufacture flexible packaging solutions.

"The merger brings together two flexible packing industry leaders both known for innovation, customer service and quality."

Ampac’s adhesive lamination, rotogravure printing capabilities and packaging solutions will complement Prolamina’s extrusion lamination and flexographic printing technology.

Wellspring Capital Management packaging sector managing partner John E Morningstar said: "The merger brings together two flexible packing industry leaders both known for innovation, customer service and quality.

"Both companies, along with their respective management teams, have a proven track record of performance and will pursue a variety of new initiatives to further enhance their product offerings, adding value to their customers’ bottom line and increasing market opportunities."
