The InterFlex Group, a flexible packaging company with facilities in the USA, Scotland and Brazil, has acquired UK flexible packaging converter EBR for an undisclosed sum.
Sunderland based EBR expands the InterFlex product lines to include a range of film and paper laminations, coldseal and coated structures, wax paper and PE bags. The combined entity will trade as InterFlex Group and will continue to operate both factories in Dalkeith and Sunderland. EBR’s senior managers will continue with the new organization.
InterFlex has also secured an additional 25,000ft2 facility in North Carolina, USA to support its growing product lines. The building will house its converting activities including slitting, lamination, coating, pouch and bag making, as well as additional printing capacity.
Stephen Doyle, the group’s ceo, comments: “The integration with EBR creates a financially robust multi-site packaging supplier offering UK customers the full complement of products and technical support. At the same time we will continue to deliver the flexibility and customized service that has been a signature of both companies. This transaction, in conjunction with our US expansion, significantly enhances the group’s technical capabilities and pushes revenues above the $100M level.”
