Decoration: LLFlex acquires Hampden Papers
publié le jeudi 01 octobre 2020
LLFlex – a global leader in packaging materials and industrial laminate solutions for the consumer packaging, building & construction, and wire & cable industries – has acquired the assets of Hampden Papers, a premium paper converter specializing in paper, foil, film, holographic and transfer metalized lamination, sheeting, and embossing.
The move unites the Hampden Papers legacy as an industry pioneer through five generations of family ownership with LLFlex’s rich heritage of over one hundred years in the packaging industry. The combination creates one of the largest and most experienced suppliers of coated and laminated substrates for packaging in North America.
The acquisition of Hampden Papers expands LLFlex’s footprint in a wide range of packaging niches, including various paper, film and foil-based packaging for food & beverage, premium laminated carton board for health & beauty products, and transfer-metalized paper and board for sustainable packaging solutions.
The acquisition comes as LLFLex begins production at its new 73,500-square-foot fully integrated manufacturing facility in High Point, North Carolina. With the ramp up of skilled labor, technical personnel, sophisticated equipment and optimized production layout, the plant will significantly expand LLFlex’s output capacity – and provide reassuring redundancy – for its two main business segments, Packaging and Industrial Laminates. The move also builds upon the consumer packaging capacity and capabilities already in place at LLFlex’s Louisville, Kentucky, manufacturing facility.
