NETHERLAND -Berlin Packaging has acquired Netherlands-based Vincap & Adolfse Packaging for an undisclosed sum to expand its footprint in the European market.
Vincap & Adolfse brings extensive experience in food and beverage closures and pharmaceutical packaging and well-established, customer-thrilling operations in Northern Europe.
The deal marks Berlin Packaging’s tenth overall acquisition since 2010 and its fourth in Europe since 2016. Berlin Packaging operates in Europe through its Bruni Glass division, headquartered in Milan, Italy.
Bruni Glass is a manufacturer of glass packaging for the spirits, wine, food and gourmet markets, and has significantly expanded Berlin Packaging’s presence in Europe when it was acquired in 2016.
“The Vincap & Adolfse integration will strengthen our business proposition and support our growth across Northern Europe,” said Paolo Recrosio, CEO of Bruni Glass.
“With the combined expertise in so many vertical markets and in so many packaging types, we are extremely optimistic about the future.”
Berlin Packaging is a supplier of glass, plastic, and metal containers and closures to companies in the beverage, food, pharmaceutical and household sectors.
With a significant background in North America the company has been expanding its global footprint, with operations in China, South Africa, and five European countries.
Considering Berlin Packaging’s track record of seamless integrations and history of strong organic growth, customers and suppliers of both companies will reap significant benefits from the combined operations of Europe’s largest packaging distributor.
“As Berlin Packaging continues to acquire companies that share our commitment to quality, service, and bottom line growth for our customers, we further separate ourselves from the competition with a tremendous global footprint, an unparalleled product and service offering, and a long history of double-digit organic growth,” said Andrew Berlin, Chairman and CEO of Berlin Packaging.
Paul Devilee and Joost Wurth, Owners of Vincap & Adolfse added: “We are excited to become part of the Berlin Packaging family and to embrace our new Bruni Glass colleagues.
“We are proud of what we have built, and we know this new partnership will bring much more opportunity for our customers, suppliers and employees,”
