The acquired businesses will allow C-P Flexible Packaging to expand its presence in the West Coast region and add expertise in the medical device, biopharmaceutical, electronics and semiconductor packaging
C-P Flexible Packaging (C-P) has acquired Fruth Custom Packaging and affiliated company Cleanroom Film and Bag (CFB) for an undisclosed sum.
Both Fruth and CFB have expertise in the manufacturing of flexible rollstock and pre-made pouches suitable for cleanroom environments.
The acquired businesses will allow C-P to expand its presence in the West Coast region and add expertise in the medical device, biopharmaceutical, electronics and semiconductor packaging.
C-P CEO Mike Hoffman said: “With the global focus on health and wellness as well as the growth in semi-conductor demand for technologies like 5G, we see significant additional growth opportunities for Fruth’s sophisticated cleanroom packaging materials.”
Based in Placentia, California, Fruth offers value-added cleanroom and custom flexible packaging solutions to the customers in electronic, medical/pharmaceutical, aerospace, industrial, agricultural, and environmental industries across North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia.
The firm’s manufacturing capabilities consist of various levels of cleanroom environments with in-house blown film extrusion, flexographic printing, speciality bag making and slitting.
Its distribution capabilities comprise a national network of speciality supply partners and a platform for e-commerce sales.
CFB, which is based in Orange of California, was acquired by Fruth in 2012.
Fruth and CFB president Jim Fruth said: “We have always tried to provide value to our customers while delivering the highest quality, proof of traceability and zero defects.
“We are excited to join C-P, a company with strong manufacturing expertise and customer focus. We look forward to using our combined strengths to expand our reach throughout North America.”
The Fruth family and management team have been advised by Thomas Blaige & Company on the sale of both businesses.
Earlier this month, C-P has acquired US-based Prestige-Pak, which manufactures printed packaging films for the retail food markets.
