Paper-based packaging products manufacturer Smurfit Kappa UK has acquired an independent corrugated packaging provider Atlas Packaging.

Atlas Packaging is a privately owned firm located in Barnstaple, North Devon.

The firm has a significant market presence in the UK, allowing it to meet the demands and provide value to its diverse client base.

Atlas Packaging has a strong market footprint in shelf-ready packaging, gift boxing, the e-commerce sector and other broad range of innovative products.

Smurfit Kappa UK has operations throughout the UK and is a subsidiary of Smurfit Kappa Group.

Smurfit Kappa Corrugated UK & Ireland CEO Eddie Fellows said: “I am delighted with this acquisition and to welcome another strong professional management team into the Smurfit Kappa organisation.

“The business has an established customer base across several industries and an excellent reputation.

“This acquisition will further strengthen our ability to service the UK market and our customers with innovative and sustainable packaging solutions.”

Last month, Smurfit Kappa launched a new sustainable packaging solution for detergent pods and capsules that is a 100% plastic-free packaging solution with a 40% reduced carbon footprint compared to the traditional rigid plastic alternatives.

Smurfit Kappa has operations in 23 European countries and 13 countries in the Americas.
