Paper-based packaging manufacturer Smurfit Kappa UK has announced the acquisition of UK company Saxon Packaging.
Norfolk-based Saxon Packaging is an independent converter of board to corrugated boxes and fitments. The company has invested over the past three years in the latest technology machinery, which allows the company to meet the needs of its broad customer base across southern and eastern England, Smurfit Kappa said.
Smurfit Kappa UK CEO Clive Bowers said: “I am delighted with this acquisition, which will integrate another strong professional management team into the Smurfit Kappa organisation. The culture of this company is very much aligned with the Smurfit Kappa philosophy, having built excellent businesses in selected customer and product sectors which will add to our existing strengths. These acquisitions support our continued drive to ‘open the future’ within the UK packaging market, further developing our customer offer, brand and reputation in a way that truly sets us apart.”
Smurfit Kappa UK is a subsidiary of the Smurfit Kappa Group, which is a global leader in paper-based packaging with operations in Europe and the Americas, as well as being quoted on the London and Irish stock exchanges.
