Wendel is in talks to acquire US-based high-performance plastics packaging company CSP Technologies for $360m.

The transaction is in line with the company’s 2013-17 objective of investing €2bn, with a strong focus on North America and Europe.

Wendel will invest approximately $190m in equity and will hold 97% of the equity in CSP alongside the management. New borrowings to support the acquisition will total $170m.

"CSP Technologies provides plastic packaging solutions to a variety of additional end-markets."

The agreement, which is subject to the necessary approvals from the antitrust authorities, is expected to be completed early next year.

CSP Technologies provides plastic packaging solutions to a variety of additional end-markets, including consumer health, food, dairy and retail. It employs 400 people and produces its patented, Six-Sigma quality products at two injection-moulding manufacturing facilities in the US and France.

The company is expected to generate more than $100m in revenues this year.
