Amcor acquires again in China

Packaging company Amcor has acquired BPI China for US$13 million.

BPI is the Chinese subsidiary of UK-based British Polythene Industries and has one plant in South China with state-of-the-art blown film and flexographic printing lines. The business produces flexible packaging products for export and domestic customers.

Amcor already has 10 flexible packaging plants in China, including four plants in Southern China.

This acquisition will strengthen Amcor’s leadership position in Southern China and complement the existing business by providing additional scale and talent. It will also broaden Amcor's capabilities in China to include flexographic printing and reduce future capital expenditure requirements. "China continues to be an attractive market for flexible packaging globally and this is an excellent opportunity to support our continued expansion in the important southern region," Amcor chief executive Ron Delia said.
