With the acquisition of Flex Products, transparent plastic packaging processor VisiPak, a division of Sinclair & Rush, has expanded its geographic reach.
"VisiPak acquired Flex Products in order to give ourselves an East Coast presence, which allows us to be closer to many of our customers," Jeff Barket, director of sales and marketing for Sinclair & Rush, told PlasticsToday. "This in turn, shortens lead time and transit cost for our customers. In addition, we wanted to add Flex Products' ultra-clear line of packaging containers to our packaging portfolio."
The move expands VisiPak's current line of plastic tube containers to include additional shapes, sizes and closure styles while increasing its manufacturing capacity.
Both companies have been manufacturing packaging products for more than 50 years and will continue to operate independent manufacturing facilities that utilize extrusion, thermoforming and injection molding processes. VisiPak is based in St. Louis, MO while Flex Products will continue producing in Carlstadt, NJ.
