Avery Dennison acquires Acpo
publié le mercredi 06 janvier 2021
Avery Dennison announced today that it has acquired the business of Ohio-based Acpo for the purchase price of $87.6 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments. The company is a leader in pressure-sensitive overlaminate products for the label and flexible packaging markets and has approximately 170 employees.
Avery Dennison has acquired the majority of Acpo’s assets, including coating, finishing and distribution operations at its Oak Harbor, Ohio, headquarters, as well as three finishing and distribution sites in Atlanta, Georgia; Oak Creek, Wisconsin; and Vancouver, Washington. Acpo employees will transition to the Avery Dennison Label and Graphic Materials team.
“Our acquisition of Acpo will further strengthen our leadership in core label materials segments,” said Mitch Butier, Avery Dennison’s chairman, president and CEO. “By adding ACPO’s well-regarded and complementary overlaminate product, we are increasing our product portfolio and adding even more value for our customers.” Missy Larick, chief operating officer of Esperia Holdings LLC, the holding company of Acpo will play a key role during the transition and will stay with Esperia Holdings LLC as chief operating officer. Jeroen Diderich, vice president and general manager, Avery Dennison Label and Graphic Materials North America, added that Acpo’s reputation for quality and service, its entrepreneurial spirit and its agile, customer-focused way of working—from quick turnaround to low minimum-order quantities—makes it a good fit for Avery Dennison’s culture and the current state of the market. “Our top priority is to ensure industry-leading service, quality and unmatched customer responsiveness for customers of both businesses,” said Diderich.
