The Integrated Packaging Group (IPG) acquired the business and assets of the Amcor Flexibles Packaging Plants in Cheltenham, Chester Hill and Kirrawee in February this year.
 
These plants produce plain and printed polyethylene products including printed industrial bags, shrink film, and PVC food films.
 
The new acquisition is transitioning well. The Cheltenham plant has been closed and production transferred to other IPG sites including Reservoir, Kewdale and Chester Hill.
 
The acquisition of these plants reinforces IPG’s growth strategy in Industrial and Agricultural packaging as well as expanding IPG into printing, converting and PVC Food films.
 
John Cerini, IPG CEO said: “This acquisition further enables IPG to develop its innovative, cost effective, and environmentally beneficial solutions for ourcustomers in Australia, New Zealand and other global markets including Asia and North America.
 
“It gives us additional capabilities in printing, converting and PVC food films which will improve our technical expertise providing opportunities into new sales market segments and gives IPG an excellent platform for future expansion of the business.”
 
IPG now offers a specialist range of printed and converted polyethylene films for a range of applications including collation shrink, bags, sacks and printed laminates, as well as an extensive range of agricultural crop packaging products under the Silafarm Product Family brand.
 
Integrated Packaging also offers a full range of stretch wrapping machines and equipment.
 
A signatory of the Australian Packaging Covenant for sustainable packaging, a member of the PACIA Sustainability Leadership Program and of APMA (Australian Packaging Machinery Association) and ISO9001 Quality Certified, Integrated Packaging is the only company in Australia that manufactures and distributes both stretch film and stretch wrapping machinery locally.
