Waddington acquires US packaging company

Plastic tableware and packaging manufacturer Waddington North America (WNA) has announced the acquisition of Eco-Products for an undisclosed sum.

WNA purchased the drink cup division of Winpak Portion Packaging in August 2012 and the latest development marks its second acquisition in 2012.

Eco-Products marketing director Wendell Simonson said the company will remain firm in its mission as a green company.

"We’re going to continue to only make products from post-consumer recycled or renewable resources," Simonson said.

US-based Eco-Products sells disposable packaging including cups, bowls, lids, containers and utensils made from post-consumer recycled cardboard and plastic, bio-based polylactic acid resins and other materials that are plant-based.
