Mauser Group, Brühl, Germany, a worldwide leading company in industrial packaging, has announced the acquisition of Varicon Solutions LLC in North America. Mauser will take over the Plastic Packaging part, which includes HDPE Tight Head and Open Head drums made out of virgin as well as of PCR resin (Post Consumer Resin), while NCG will assume the reconditioning activities of Varicon as part of an asset deal. This transaction is in line with the company’s “buy-and-build” strategy.
Varicon is well-known as a manufacturer, particularly of containers made out of PCR resin, and as a service provider of plastic drums and IBCs.
