Commercial Printers Seek Opportunities in Packaging Sector
Significant transactions were announced throughout the spectrum of packaging technologies in March, from the basics—paper making for packaging products, to the sophisticated—global management of brand identity at multiple print providers across the globe, many using different printing technologies.
One way to move into packaging is to buy your way in. Transcontinental did exactly that by acquiring flexible packaging printer Capri Packaging. Although the full details of the transaction were not made public, based on its stated goal to jump into flexible packaging, the acquisition looks like a smart deal for Transcontinental.
