DANBURY, CONN. — First Brands Corp. ramped up its Glad-brand production in Africa with the purchase of Harare, Zimbabwe-based Sealapac.
The company purchased the firm in December for just under $1 million. Company officials would not reveal the number of employees or film extrusion lines at the plant.
Sealapac was a small contract manufacturer of plastic consumer and commercial products. It will be part of the Glad food-wrap operation serving all of southern Africa. First Brands ranked third in Plastics News' 1996 survey of North American film and sheet manufacturers, with relevant sales of $693 million.
