Bossar provides a range of machinery solutions to form fill and seal beverages, food, pharma, cosmetic, homecare and chemical products.
The flexible packaging firm will retain the Bossar brand and will continue to use its operational headquarters in Barcelona of Spain and production plant in India.
The combined entity conducts operations across Europe, Russia, China, India, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Canada and the US.
