ZWOLLE, THE NETHERLANDS (Jan. 3, 3:50 p.m. ET) — Linpac Allibert and Schoeller Arca Systems, both returnable transit packaging businesses run by private equity firm One Equity Partners, have combined and rebranded as Schoeller Allibert.

The firm, based in Zwolle, the Netherlands, says that it is now the largest manufacturer of reusable plastic packaging for material handling.

OEP has a controlling stake in SAS. In March 2012, it purchased Linpac Allibert from the Linpac Group with the intention of creating a joint ownership structure between the two.

The two businesses were operating as sister companies. Rebranding them as one company combines “not only their strengths, expertise and innovative product ranges but also their names, to create a single world leading reusable transit packaging business,” said Eric De Bokx, CEO of Schoeller Allibert, in a news release.

The firm now has more than 40 production and sales operations throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Its product offerings include foldable containers, bulk containers, plastic pallets, stackable and nesting crates and dollies and lids.

Rebranding will allow Schoeller Allibert to expand its offerings in existing markets as well as enter new markets, and boosts the firms research and development capabilities, according to the release.
