Inteplast Group has acquired a portion of the assets of Trinity Packaging in New York for an undisclosed sum. The new company Trinity Plastics will be part of Inteplast's Integrated Bagging Systems Division (IBS), which manufactures plastics bags and foodservice items.
The company acquired the manufacturing facilities in Lewistown, Pennsylvania, and Pueblo, Colorado.
According to Inteplast, the production facilities will continue full operations and join its facilities in continuing to serve the North American market.
Trinity Plastics complements the reclosable bags offered by the Minigrip group of companies, also members of IBS.
Inteplast Group president and founder Dr John Young said the company is excited to make the operations in Lewistown and Pueblo part of its growing group.
"Our plan is to service our customers better by combining the unique strengths of each organization to provide greater value. This addition further exemplifies our commitment to ensuring quality manufacturing jobs for American workers," Young added.
The decision to sell the consumer private brand and carry-out bag divisions is a strategic one for Trinity Packaging as it will enable the company to focus entirely on its heavy duty and specialty films divisions.
Trinity Packaging, which will remain headquartered in Armonk, NY, will retain its Rocky Mount, VA and Buffalo, NY manufacturing locations.
