“For more than 20 years ProAmpac has partnered with Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Orlando to jointly supply lidding and films to the marketplace,” says ProAmpac CEO Greg Tucker. “This acquisition enables us to offer customers an integrated and comprehensive capability as well as an ability to meet their increasing demands for daisy chain portion-pack lidding. We are pleased about the enhanced offerings this acquisition will bring to our customers.”
Cincinnati-based ProAmpac is owned by Pritzker Group Private Capital along with management and co-investors. With the addition of Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Orlando, ProAmpac has 23 manufacturing sites in North America, Europe and Asia with 3100 employees supplying more than 5000 customers in 90 countries. ProAmpac serves food, pet care, healthcare, lawn care and retail markets as well as providing secure packaging for the transport of cash and valuables.
Founded in 1977, Clondalkin acquired Spiralkote in 2002, and in 2014 became known as Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Orlando. The business will become part of the ProAmpac brand and operate as a part of the Extrusion and Laminations Division. Bill Harris, former president of Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Orlando, will lead ProAmpac’s lidding solutions.
Michael Nelson, Pritzker Group Private Capital investment partner, says, “This is a sound strategic fit, giving ProAmpac a needed foothold in lidding and other printing, embossing and die-cutting capabilities. It further underscores Pritzker Group Private Capital’s commitment to investing in companies with proven leadership and market expertise.”
