Easypack Goes Across The Pond!
Monday, 03 October 2016
Successful British businesses are always an attraction to our friends across the pond and, following years of continuous growth, Easypack was approached by a large and very successful US packaging organisation, Pregis LLC. They were looking for a strong and very capable manufacturer of environmentally friendly packing solutions to complement their US portfolio, and to allow them to expand into North America.
In the early part of 2016, after many months of talks, Easypack was acquired by Pregis LLC. The new agreement has a great number of benefits for both Easypack and Pregis. The Easypack team took our core products over to a convention in Hawaii, where they were demonstrated to their network of US distributors.
Our systems received much acclaim and were praised for their speed, quality and simplicity and versatility of use. The first consignments of systems including our renowned Packmaster™, Packsolo® and Packmate®, have already been shipped and distributed to customers.
Our new partnership also benefits our customers here in Europe. 2017 will see the launch of a new and versatile packing solution conceived by Pregis and ideal for our portfolio, along with a number of innovations of our own. Further investments are planned for 2017 benefitting all of our European offices including product development and an increase in staff headcount.
This is an exciting part of our journey, and along with celebrating 25 years of packing innovation in 2017, these changes will continue to benefit our customers and theirs too.
