ALPLA com­pletes take­over of Zamil ALPLA 

All three loca­tions in the Middle East to con­tinue operations

Hard, 13 February 2019 – The pack­a­ging solu­tions spe­cia­list ALPLA, based in Aus­tria, has com­pleted a 100 per cent take­over of Zamil ALPLA. ALPLA and Zamil founded a joint ven­ture in 2008, of which ALPLA pre­viously held a 49 per cent share.

After ten years of close col­la­bo­ra­tion as part of a joint ven­ture, ALPLA has acquired all the shares of Zamil ALPLA. The buyer will con­tinue to run the com­pany as before, and with all employees, under the name ALPLA. Around 390 employees pro­duce pre­forms and pack­a­ging made from HDPE and PET at three loca­tions in Dammam, Jeddah (both Saudi Arabia) and Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

The acqui­si­tion was signed on 27 December 2018 and will be com­pleted in the first quarter of 2019. The con­trac­ting part­ners have agreed not to dis­c­lose any of the details of the agreement.
