Mason Wells to acquire Appleton Performance Packaging

Mason Wells has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Appleton Performance Packaging from Appleton Papers Inc.
The business will be renamed NEX Performance Films Inc., and will be owned by Mason Wells, current management and other co-investors. The transaction is expected to close in July.

NEX will remain an independent manufacturer of custom specialty polyethylene blown films for the flexible packaging industry and will not be affiliated with any other converting operations within Mason Wells’ portfolio.

“Mason Wells is pleased to be partnering with NEX’s management team to support the company’s growth initiatives,” said Greg Myers, Managing Director of Mason Wells.

“Mason Wells shares our vision of becoming the leading independent supplier of blown polyethylene film to converters, and they are prepared to immediately invest in our film business,” said Kathy Bolhous, the existing leader of the business who will become President and CEO of NEX Performance Films.
