Kohlberg Acquires Bemis Healthcare Packaging Europe

New York-based Kohlberg, owner of Nelipak, recently completed the company's acquisition of Bemis Healthcare Packaging Europe according to reports, which say the two will operate under the Nelipak Healthcare Packaging brand.  Nelipak is a manufacturer of packaging for class II and class III medical devices, specifically custom-designed rigid healthcare packaging. Kohlberg reportedly paid $394 million in the deal.

 
Bemis European Healthcare Packaging was acquired from Amcor's flexible packaging business unit, and offers healthcare packaging solutions that are technologically advanced to markets including diagnostic, medical device, and combination packaging along with heat seal coating technology.
 
Nelipak President and CEO Mike Kelly said the thermoformed and flexible packaging products offered by the two companies will "significantly enhance Nelipak's capabilities with the addition of flexible packaging alternatives for our global customers." 
 
Headquartered in Cranston, RI, Nelipak has employed over 800 people at its production sites in PA, RI, AZ, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and other locations for six decades.  The Bemis Healthcare plants located in Brigg, England; Clara, Ireland; and Londonderry, Northern Ireland bring an additional $170 million in annual sales into the Nelipak fold.
 
Nelipak was purchased by Kohlberg from Milwaukee-based Mason Wells in early July.  Kohlberg operating partner Roger Prevot said that Mike Kelly and his team will be better armed to serve Nelipak's customers as an all-inclusive partner for their packaging needs.
