Linpac Allibert and Schoeller Arca Systems, both in the business of returnable transit packaging and both run by private equity firm One Equity Partners, have combined and rebranded as Schoeller Allibert.

The firm, based in Zwolle, said it is now the largest maker of reusable plastic packaging for material handling.

One Equity has a controlling stake in SAS. In March, it purchased Linpac Allibert from 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 their “strengths, expertise and innovative product ranges,” said Erik 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, dollies and lids.

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