Pregis strengthen European operations following Easypack acquisition
21 January 2018
US packaging giant, Pregis LLC, is expanding its global operations across Europe following its 2016 acquisition of the Easypack, a UK environmentally friendly packaging brand.
Over the last two years, Easypack has strengthened its entire operations in preparation for European growth, and now trades as Pregis Limited.
The change of name allows the company to further expand and develop new opportunities through its portfolio of protective packaging solutions and its increasing European distribution network.
The Easypack range 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. The company's 100% recycled, recyclable and biodegradable paper packaging will continue to be distributed from its UK production centres.
Pregis Limited’s operations director, Jason Cox says: “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 continues: “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”.
Pregis Limited has already launched a range of new solutions over the last year including Airspeed Edge, an environmentally-friendly alternative to air bags and the multi-purpose Quantum XT. They also launched two versatile new Easypack products - Packmaster Pro and Packmate Pro.
