Acquisition of packaging films producer Seville Flexpack / First production site in the US
German packaging producer SŁdpack (Ochsenhausen; www.suedpack.com) is stepping up its activities in the US through an acquisition. The film packaging supplier took over ownership of Seville Flexpack (Oak Creek, Wisconsin / USA; www.sevilleflexpack.com) on 1 October 2017. So far, SŁdpack has only been present on the US market with a sales office in Chicago, Illinois.

In the Seville Flexpack plant in Oak Creek, SŁdpack CEO Johannes Remmele now intends to print and refine films delivered from Europe. "We have been looking for a suitable location for our US business for a long time now," said Remmele. It is not only the state-of-the-art machinery that is important for SŁdpack but the site's location in the core region of the meat and cheese industry. Both are key customers for the film products with which the company will be expanding its US business.

In 2016, SŁdpack had sales of EUR 367m. The main focus of its activities are lid films, rigid and flexible films and also bags that are produced in its four plants in Germany, France, Poland and Switzerland. In addition to these, the company owns the medical technology firm SŁdpack Medica, which produces sterile packaging for the medical sector in Coulmer / France, under cleanroom conditions. The company has some 1,300 employees worldwide.
