Petainer is a leading PET and plastic packaging supplier
Petainer, a leading PET and plastic packaging supplier to the food and drinks sector, has announced that it is preparing to enter the UK market with an investment in a new site early in 2015.
The company, which recently lost out on the purchase of the APPE Group, said it has recently been approached by “a number of major UK-based brands”, making it “an opportune time” to continue its expansion plans.
““While being disappointed that we weren’t able to acquire APPE in the administration process of La Seda de Barcelona, Petainer is well positioned and supported to continue to develop and grow the PET and plastics market with current products as well as new launches in the coming months,” commented Nigel Pritchard, CEO of Petainer.
“We continue to look for complementary acquisitions but are also focussed on our on-going organic growth. In particular we are very pleased to announce that we are preparing to enter the UK market with an investment in an all-new site, the location of which will be announced early in the New Year.
“Bringing our vision and expertise to the UK will further enhance the performance in both small and large containers packaging - offering brand owners a true alternative, not just in PET, but also in other plastics.”
