US-based hybrid packaging supplier Berlin Packaging has acquired Nest-Filler PKG, a packaging solutions provider for beauty and cosmetic products, for an undisclosed sum.

Founded in 2003 by Steve Shim, Nest-Filler provides a suite of packaging solutions for the skincare and colour cosmetic beauty markets.

The firm, based in South Korea, provides a wide range of innovative plastic and glass packaging products with a focus on sustainable solutions.

Nest-Filler innovates and produces the latest packaging solutions in collaboration with top-tier manufacturers based in South Korea.

With its in-house research and development centre, Nest-Filler assists clients in adopting forward-thinking packaging trends, incorporating eco-friendly practices such as post-consumer resin (PCR), refill technology, and other environmentally conscious solutions.

The deal is expected to expand Berlin Packaging’s footprint in Asia-Pacific and boost its beauty and cosmetic packaging offering.

As part of the transaction, all employees and locations of Nest-Filler will be retained.

Berlin Packaging’s Global CEO and president Bill Hayes said: “This is a highly strategic acquisition for Berlin Packaging that expands our presence in Asia-Pacific and adds to our growing global beauty and cosmetic capabilities.

“This acquisition also offers our customers even greater access to premium skincare packaging made in South Korea, the industry leader for skincare products.”

Nest-Filler CEO Steve Shim said: “We are very pleased to join Berlin Packaging, and we are eager to take an exciting step forward to provide our customers with access to Berlin Packaging’s impressive suite of packaging products and services while sharing our innovative packaging solutions.”

In July this year, Berlin Packaging snapped up Greek closures, corks, and glass containers provider Coropoulis Packaging.

Established in 1893, Coropoulis Packaging offers packaging solutions for the wine, spirits, food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics end markets.
