Transilwrap Company, Inc., a value-added manufacturer, converter and distributor of specialty film products, has acquired Ellis Industrial Packaging.
Ellis Industrial Packaging is a European distributor of industrial active and protective packaging systems. The Company offers a wide range of packaging solutions including films, bags, wrap and corrugated products designed to protect steel, tinplated and coated metals during shipping and storage. Ellis serves a wide range of customers in Europe, and operates a sales and distribution site in Cardiff, Wales.
“This acquisition broadens the anti-corrosion and protective packaging product portfolio in our MetPro business unit, and further strengthens our position in the industrial and steel manufacturing industry,” said Andy Brewer, Transilwrap’s President & CEO. “Ellis’ extensive product line will greatly complement our current portfolio of anti-corrosion film technologies to offer our combined customers a total packaging solution.”
“We look forward to the growth opportunities that this partnership brings,” said Colin Champ, President of Ellis. “MetPro’s anti-corrosion packaging innovations, manufacturing expertise and facilities footprint will allow Ellis Industrial Packaging to grow our leadership position in the marketplace.”
In November 2013, The Jordan Company, in partnership with the existing management team, acquired Transilwrap as a platform to build a leading global specialty films company. Ellis Industrial Packaging represents the fourth acquisition under Jordan’s ownership as it expands Transilwrap’s global end-market reach in targeted growth markets.
Ellis’ business operations and employees will be managed by the current leadership team as part of Transilwrap’s MetPro Group.
