Alpla Buys Italian Propack
In mid June Alpla Italia signed an agreement to acquire a 100 % stake in Propack Srl, Ostellato, Italy. With this acquisition, the eighth plant in the country, Alpla has expanded its production capacities in the North-East of Italy.
Propack was founded in 2002 under the leadership of Gianni Scapoli, who has developed the company as an exclusive supplier of bottles for the “mother-company” Biochimica, a leading producer of detergents. The company employs about 20 people and its focus is in the production of HDPE and PET bottles for Italian customers.
The product portfolio complements Alpla's operations, with proximity to new potential customers in one of the most industrialized areas in Italy. "We are gaining access to a strong distribution network. Propack is a good strategic partner, which will help us to achieve our targets in Italy, where we are involved since 1985", says ALPLA CEO Günther Lehner.
