SPAIN (News release) -- Smurfit Kappa has signed an agreement to acquire Pusa Pack S.L., a bag-in-box packaging plant located in Onda, Spain. Pusa Pack will be integrated into Smurfit Kappa's Bag-in-Box operations in Spain.
Commenting on the acquisition, Thierry Minaud, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box, said: "Heavy-duty packaging is evolving towards more environmentally friendly solutions. We increasingly see the trend of companies moving away from plastic or stainless steel intermediate bulk containers (IBC) in favour of much more sustainable corrugated solutions which have a considerably lower carbon footprint."
Pusa Pack S.L. specialises in the manufacture of large-capacity flexible bags, sized from 200 to 1500 litres, which are used for the storage and transport of bulk food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and other liquid and semi-liquid products.
Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box has been active in the heavy-duty packaging market since 2002 supplying high quality large-capacity bags and corrugated cardboard containers through its sales office in Liquiwell, Germany. Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box is the European leader for Bag-in-Box solutions.
