ProAmpac swoops for Specialty Packaging to bolster fast food packaging offering
14 Jun 2022 --- ProAmpac has acquired Specialty Packaging, a US-based specialty paper, film and foil packaging producer for the fast food and food services industries. The move deepens the flexible packaging and material science leader’s presence in the southwestern US.
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, US, Specialty Packaging is a leading provider of paper, film, foil bags, sandwich wraps, basket liners and other custom products for longtime blue-chip fast food and food service brands. The company produces custom and stock paper, film and foil products from its state-of-the-art 100,000 square-foot facility.
With this acquisition, ProAmpac broadens its portfolio of highly-customized, recyclable food packaging solutions and increases its paper bag converting capacity.
Greg Tucker, founder and CEO of ProAmpac, comments: “Specialty Packaging has a very complementary offering of high-quality products and a proven commitment to customer service. We are excited to expand our customer relationships and enhance our manufacturing presence as we work together to strengthen our position as an industry leader in specialty, sustainable packaging.”
“We are pleased to join forces with the ProAmpac team, who values the history of our family-owned business and is committed to our company’s long-term growth,” says Hank Dorris, president at Specialty Packaging. “With ProAmpac’s extensive and comprehensive manufacturing capabilities, we will be able to better serve our existing customers while expanding into exciting new end-markets.”
