US packaging giant, Pregis LLC, is expanding its global operations across Europe following its 2016 acquisition of the UK’s leading environmentally friendly packaging brand, Easypack Limited.
Over the last two years, Easypack Limited has strengthened its entire operations in preparation for European growth, and from January 2018 the Company will trade as Pregis Limited.
The change of name allows the Company to further expand and develop new opportunities through its new portfolio of innovative protective packaging solutions and its increasing European distribution network. Customers across Europe will have access to some of the most advanced packaging systems in the world, which are currently enjoyed by thousands of major US brands from across all sectors.
The Easypack range of eco-friendly packaging solutions will continue to be an important part of the Pregis Limited offering – design and manufacture will remain in the UK and customers will continue to be fully supported, now with the added benefit of having access to further, complementary solutions. Their 100% recycled, recyclable and biodegradable paper packaging will continue to be distributed from its UK production centres.
Pregis Limited’s operations director, Jason Cox said “We welcomed and embraced the opportunity to become part of the Pregis family because we are all driven by the same passions and ethics. The Easypack brand of environmentally friendly packaging solutions is more relevant today than ever and as Pregis Limited, we will be able to deliver our innovative, green packaging solutions to even more customers across Europe, directly to end users and through our growing network of distribution partners”.
Cox continued “Pregis is at the forefront of protective packaging innovation, improvement and cost-efficiency, so we can now offer our customers end-to-end packaging solutions, along with full consultancy services as well as the same excellent customer service and value”.
Easypack Limited was established in 1992 and became the UK’s leading manufacturer of environmentally friendly packaging solutions for commercial packing operations. Its continual drive to innovate and design high quality, eco-friendly packaging solutions led to them become an award-winning, in-the-box packaging brand in the UK and across Europe, and was subsequently recognised and acquired by Pregis LLC.
Pregis LLC is a leading US provider of innovative protective packaging materials and systems. Headquartered in Chicago, they operate multiple North American manufacturing and warehousing facilities devoted to protective packaging solutions. Pregis products and systems can be found in virtually every consumer and industrial segment and are supported by a comprehensive sales, customer service, technical service and distribution network.
