Maxwell_Chase_1-15-14_0211Polymeric protective packaging specialist CSP Technologies has acquired Maxwell Chase Technologies, a US-based producer of absorbent and non-absorbent packaging solutions for the food industry.

This transaction is in line with the company’s diversification and growth strategy to further expand into the food industry.

“By extending our portfolio to include Maxwell Chase’s differentiated product offering supported by its expertise in moisture-absorbent technology, we can offer our customers comprehensive packaging solutions.

“Our combined capabilities will enable our customers to address the increasing challenges in the food packaging industry by offering reliable design and delivery.”

Based in Georgia, Maxwell Chase produces active packaging solutions that control moisture to help keep foods, including fresh-cut fruits, vegetables, meats, poultry, and seafood fresh for longer.

Maxwell also produces processing equipment that integrates with its packaging. Its product range includes trays, pads, pouches, retail containers and mini containers, as well as semi-automatic and automatic slicers.

Maxwell Chase CEO Michael Walsh said: “We look forward to working with the CSP team to expand our capability in food packaging innovation.”
