ALPLA grows through acqui­si­tion in Italy

Pro­pack, head­quar­tered in Ostellato/province of Fer­rara, will be the eighth ALPLA site in Italy

Hard/Ostellato, 27th June 2017 – ALPLA, a lea­ding global pro­vider of plastic pack­a­ging, has acquired a 100 per cent stake in the Ita­lian com­pany Pro­pack Srl. The com­pany, based in Ostel­lato (FE), is spe­cia­lized in the pro­duc­tion of HDPE and PET bot­tles for home-care.

In mid June ALPLA Italia signed an agree­ment to acquire a 100 per cent stake in Pro­pack Srl. With this acqui­si­tion, the eighth plant in the country, ALPLA has expanded its pro­duc­tion capa­ci­ties in the North-East of Italy. The pro­duct port­folio also com­ple­ments its ope­ra­tions, with pro­xi­mity to new poten­tial cus­to­mers in one of the most indus­tria­lized areas in Italy. ‘We are gai­ning access to a strong dis­tri­bu­tion net­work. Pro­pack is a good stra­tegic partner, which will help us to achieve our tar­gets in Italy, where we are involved since 1985’, says ALPLA CEO Gün­ther Lehner.

Spe­cia­li­zing in HDPE and PET bottles
Pro­pack was founded in 2002 under the lea­dership of Gianni Sca­poli, who has deve­loped the com­pany as an exclu­sive sup­plier of bot­tles for the “mother-company” Bio­chi­mica, a lea­ding pro­ducer of deter­gents. The com­pany employs about 20 people and its focus is in the pro­duc­tion of HDPE and PET bot­tles for Ita­lian customers.

The deal is expected to be con­cluded by the middle of July 2017.
