Consolidated Container Co. is expanding its operations with the purchase of Deltapac Packaging.
Montreal-based Deltapac makes high density polyethylene bottles for specialty chemical, cosmetic, food and pharmaceutical applications.
The acquisition of Deltapac was made through Reid Canada, a subsidiary of Atlanta-based CCC.
"This acquisition expands CCC's footprint in Canada as well as product offerings in the chemical, sanitation and food industries, and increases our exposure in the pharmaceutical packaging market. We continually strive to drive value for our customers through innovative solutions and new product offerings in growth markets," said Patrick Keese, senior vice president and general manager of CCC's Consumer/Industrial Group, in a statement.
Deltapac President Annie Perreault said in a news release that the sale "enables a healthy evolution of our plant, offering a promising future for our employees."
CCC is a subsidiary of Lowes Corp. and makes rigid plastic packaging for the dairy, chemical, food, nutraceuticals and beverage markets. The company also operates Envision Plastics, a recycler.
CCC, with 2,300 workers, has 57 rigid plastic packaging plants and two recycling facilities.
The acquisition follows CCC's purchase of Semopac Canada Inc. of Longueuil, Quebec, in 2016. Semopac makes 3- and 5-gallon polycarbonate containers for water coolers.
CCC is the eighth-largest blow molder in North America with estimated sales of $810 million, according to an annual list compiled by Plastics News.
