VPK agrees deal for acquisition of Encase

VPK Group has reached an agreement with COPI Holding to buy Encase, a manufacturer and designer of corrugated cardboard packaging.

Encase operates two integrated corrugated packaging plants in England and one sheet plant in Scotland. VPK said its intention is to merge Encase with its UK corrugated operations, formerly known as Rigid.

VPK’s corrugated operations in UK and Ireland, formerly known as Rigid Containers and recently rebranded as VPK Packaging, has experienced consistent growth since it entered the VPK Group in 2000. VPK revealed it has invested more than £100 million into the division.

The company added that the combined businesses are expected to achieve yearly sales of more than £200 million in corrugated packaging and sheets.
