PPC Flexible Packaging Buys Plastic Packaging Technologies

PPC Flexible Packaging LLC (PPC) recently announced that it has bought Kansas-based Plastic Packaging Technologies, LLC (PPT).

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

PPC, headquartered in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, is a printer and convertor of flexible films, pouches, and other packaging designs, including prototypes. With the addition of PPT, PPC now operates 13 manufacturing facilities.

PPC was founded in 2017 with its first acquisition. Its cleanroom packaging is used for health care and medical applications, consumer snack and organic brands, specialty produce, pet, nutraceutical, bakery, and horticulture markets, according to a company news release.

PPT was founded in the early 1970’s and acquired by brothers David and Dan Staker in 2002. PPT’s products include up to 11-color high-definition printed roll stock films, high-barrier laminations, and an array of premade pouch formats, including flat-bottom, box and pinch-bottom, stand-up, and quad-bags.

PPT has 425 workers in manufacturing and distribution facilities in Kansas City, Kansas, and Columbus, Ohio.

“This partnership will enable us to deliver even greater value to our customers, with broader and deeper capabilities and capacity, greater technical and financial resources to support continued strong growth, and significant opportunities for our associates to contribute and develop professionally in a fast-growing, robust industry,” said David Staker, PPT president and CEO, in a statement.
