Amcor Rigid Plastics USA LLC has purchased the manufacturing assets and intellectual property of Eco-Groupe Inc., a privately held preform manufacturing operation with four manufacturing sites in the U.S. Amcor Rigid Plastics has also purchased a minority equity interest in EnKon LLC, a woman-owned business enterprise affiliate of Eco-Groupe Inc.
“This acquisition will continue our growth strategy and commitment to the packaging industry,” says Mike Schmitt, Amcor Rigid Plastics President. “Eco-Groupe’s technologies will strengthen our innovation focus and expand our offerings to customers.”
Eco-Groupe’s technology portfolio includes a modular molding system called Viper, which allows for multiple size preforms to be injected simultaneously, and Eco-Pod, a mobile manufacturing system.
“We look forward to welcoming the Eco-Groupe employees as our co-workers,” Schmitt says. “Our focus will remain on delivering the highest levels of quality and service to all customers as we move forward.”
