Pouch and cap company Gualapack SpA is opening a sales office in Miami that will serve customers in the United States and Canada.
"This opening is an important milestone for our company, in terms of networking and business development in a demanding market. It's an exciting challenge," said Stefano Manfredi, CEO of the company's new subsidiary covering the two countries, in a statement.
Gualapack, based in Alessandria, Italy, has 2,300 employees and locations in 11 countries in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. The company also makes laminates and filling machines.
The new office opening follows an October acquisition of flexible packaging converter Teruel Embalagens and its two plants in Jaguariúna and Ouro Fino, Brazil.
