Alpla acquires all shares of Zamil Alpla. The acquisition is expected to be closed within the first quarter of 2019 (© Alpla)

The manufacturer of packaging solutions Alpla Werke Alwin Lehner GmbH & Co KG (Alpla), Hard, Austria, has completed a 100% takeover of Zamil Alpla. Both companies founded a joint venture in 2008, of which Alpla previously held a 49% share.

After ten years of close collaboration as part of a joint venture, Alpla has acquired all the shares of Zamil Alpla. The buyer will continue to run the company as before, and with all employees, under the name Alpla. Around 390 employees produce preforms and packaging made from HDPE and PET at three locations in Dammam, Jeddah (both Saudi Arabia) and Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

The acquisition was signed on 27 December 2018 and will be completed in the first quarter of 2019. The contracting partners have agreed not to disclose any of the details of the agreement.
