Rowpak sold to Midlands competitor
ROWPAK Containers of Audenshaw in Tameside has been bought by Staffordshire-based Weedon Holdings Group for an undisclosed sum.
Rowpak, which makes corrugated packaging and employs 100 staff, will now be known as Weedon Corrugated Products.
Hednesford-based Weedon Holdings said the deal is expected to double the company’s turnover from £10m to nearly £20m.
Managing director John Weedon said: “As Rowpak was based in Manchester, this move gives us a springboard into the north of England.
“Our customers will now be able to draw upon a much wider range of facilities and resources as the acquisition gives us strategic support for sheet supply and allows us to offer an end-to-end solution.”
Weedon Holdings Group was established in 1987. Group companies include Weedon PSC, a manufacturer of retail-ready packaging and point-of-sale display units, and i2i Europe, a specialist in retail own-label packaging.
