ProtecPac Acquires Packaging Company

ProtecPac has acquired the assets of GW Worldwide Protective Packaging Corp., Brampton, Ont., Canada.

“We are pleased to announce this acquisition, which helps ProtecPac take advantage of growth potential in the United States and Canada,” says Jan Willem Wieringa, general manager, ProtecPac.

GW Worldwide Protective Packaging’s product line (air cushioning, mailers, laminations and converting capability) is compatible with ProtecPac’s offerings and helps expand the company’s manufacturing output.

“Additionally, the new manufacturing capability will assist ProtecPac to enter the polyethylene bubble mailer market. This product line addition will enable us to offer our customers another protective packaging option,” Wieringa says.

GW Worldwide Protective Packaging was founded in 2001 by Edgar Glyn-Williams and Joanna Glyn-Williams. The father- and-daughter team has decided to exit the protective packaging venture to focus on other business interests.

In addition to the Brampton facility, ProtecPac has two additional manufacturing facilities in the Montreal area. Corporate offices are in Lachine, Que., Canada.

ProtecPac, a division of Montreal-based IndusPac, offers a wide variety of protective packaging solutions ranging from primary base materials to converted finished products. Offerings include polyethylene foam, air bubble cushioning, mailers, adhesive and cohesive materials, laminated products, loose-fill and single-faced corrugated.
