TCG Legacy, a portfolio company of CORE Industrial Partners, has acquired US-based packaging and labelling solutions provider MedLit Graphics for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Windsor, New Jersey, MedLit Graphics offers packaging and labelling solutions for a wide range of customers in the pharmaceutical industry.

In addition, the transaction is expected to enhance the overall scope and breadth of capabilities to serve both production and marketing applications for pharmaceutical customers

CORE senior partner Frank Papa said: “This acquisition significantly expands TCG Legacy’s packaging capabilities for pharmaceutical production applications, and we’ll continue to actively pursue acquisitions, similar to MedLit, that simultaneously broaden our customer base, enhance our service offering and deepen our presence in the attractive pharmaceutical and healthcare end markets.”

Winston & Strawn offered legal representation to CORE and TCG Legacy in the deal, while Sperry, Mitchell & Company acted as exclusive financial advisor to MedLit.

TCG Legacy offers a range of cross-media marketing, graphics, printing and packaging services for the customers in the pharmaceutical and higher education end markets.
