Polymer Packaging Buys Ohio-based Flexible Packaging Supplier

Polymer Packaging, Inc., (PPI) of Ohio recently reported that it has bought The William-Allen Company, a supplier of flexible packaging and containers.

William-Allen, which ships internationally from its 33,00-square-foot warehouse/distribution center in North Canton, Ohio, provides various services including design, production, quality control, inventory management, warehousing, and distribution.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Combining resources will offer added value to our current and future customers,” says Larry Lanham, CEO of PPI, which has its corporate headquarters in North Canton and manufacturing operations in Allendale, Michigan. “The William-Allen Company has been offering flexible packaging solutions for the baking, frozen foods, and snack industries since 1973. This acquisition gives us the ability to broaden our product offerings in the food packaging space, while expanding our office, manufacturing, and distribution capabilities.”

George Nutial, William-Allen president, says the merger of the flexible packaging suppliers is an opportunity to capitalize on each company’s unique skills and strengths.

Founded in 1986, PPI is a flexible packaging supplier for the food, medical, pharmaceutical, automotive, industrial, and other packaging markets.
