Berlin announced a definitive agreement to acquire All-Pak, Inc. on February 8, 2010.

"We are excited to complete our transaction with All-Pak," said Andrew T. Berlin, Chairman and CEO of Berlin Packaging. "The combined company has an even stronger product and service offering, delivered by an outstanding team. We are focused on a smooth integration, which will allow us, even more than before, to thrill our customers with faster growth, improved system costs and greater productivity."

The acquisition brings together two suppliers of rigid packaging products and services. The combined company has more than 40 sales and warehouse locations across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Customers will now have access to a broader network of expertise, with knowledge in personal care, pharmaceutical, lab supplies, food and beverage, chemical and industrial, dangerous goods packaging and other vital sectors. Furthermore, customers can take advantage of an expanded array of services, including custom packaging design, international sourcing, capital lending, supply chain optimization, inventory management and assembly.

Berlin Packaging is headquartered in Chicago, and the All-Pak division will maintain a significant operational presence at all of its geographical locations.
