amcor-buildingAmcor has announced the acquisition of California-based Deluxe Packages, a privately owned American flexible packaging business, for $45m.

The acquired business will form part of Amcor’s newly formed Flexibles Americas business group, the Melbourne-headquartered company revealed.

Deluxe Packages generates annual sales of about $42 million and makes high-performance flexible packaging for the fresh food and snack segments, Amcor said.

“North America is an attractive region for flexible packaging and this acquisition represents an excellent opportunity to accelerate profitable growth,” Amcor CEO Ron Delia said in a statement.

“With the addition of Deluxe Packages, Amcor’s customer value proposition in the specialty food packaging segment is strengthened with a combined East and West Coast footprint. This acquisition will enhance growth in priority segments and generate strong returns,” Delia continued.

Deluxe Packages was acquired by Paperboard Packaging Corp. in 1969 and later moved to Yuba City, about 45 minutes north of San Francisco. The company has been operating at a 100,000-square-foot plant since 2010, according to its website.

Products include fresh cut produce, frozen food and nut and dried fruit packaging. The company also makes packaging for bakery, dairy, candy, coffee, condiment, confectionery, grains, snack foods and pharmaceuticals, the website states.

Amcor is a global leader in responsible global packaging solutions supplying a broad range of rigid & flexible packaging products into the food, beverage, healthcare, home and personal care and tobacco packaging industries. The company has over 180 sites across 40 countries and 29,000 employees.
