TricorBraun has signed an agreement to acquire German glass packaging distributor, Gläser & Flaschen.
Founded in 2003, Gläser & Flaschen supplies glass packaging for food and ingredients as well as mason jars and cooking accessories, serving both the commercial and consumer markets. The company has a distribution and operations centre in Wustermark, Brandenburg.
The acquisition, which is expected to close in November, will see TricorBraun expand its European presence. Once completed, Gläser & Flaschen will operate as Gläser & Flaschen, a TricorBraun company.
“Gläser & Flaschen has built a strong business known for its quality, innovation and technical expertise,” said Declan McCarthy, president of TricorBraun Europe. “We are pleased to partner with the outstanding Gläser & Flaschen team to offer more supply chain options to customers while investing in their continued growth and expansion.”
Stefanie Burmeister, managing director at Gläser & Flaschen, said: “We have such an intense passion for our business, our talented team, our customers and suppliers, and our strong community in the preserved food world – we knew we needed an exceptional partner as we begin our next phase of growth. TricorBraun’s world-class reputation, paired with its focus on team members, service for customers, and emphasis on growth, makes it our ideal home.”
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
