Constantia Flexibles acquires flexible packaging business

Constantia Flexibles Group strengthens its position in the European pharmaceutical packaging industry with acquisition of Lamp San Prospero SPA.

Constantia Flexibles acquired the flexible packaging business owned by the Italian company in the context of acompetitive auction as part of a restructuring process (‘concordato preventivo’) governed by the Court of Modena in Italy.

Modena-based Lamp was founded in 1963 and belongs to privately owned VIMA Holding. Its core products are printed aluminum blister foil and coldform slitting for major pharmaceutical companies. Lamp achieved sales of approximately 15 million euros in 2015 and currently has about 50 employees.

“Lamp gives us greater access to the Southern European pharmaceutical market and fits in with our satellite production concept in Europe, which optimizes production and logistic processes, thus providing best-in-class service close to our customers’ facilities,” says Pierre-Henri Bruchon, executive vice president and head of Constantia Flexibles’ pharma division.

Constantia Flexibles’ pharma division is the world’s second largest flexible packaging manufacturer for the pharmaceutical and home & personal care industries. It operates production sites in Austria, Germany, Spain, Vietnam, the UK, and Belgium.

The pharma division has annual sales of approximately 330 million euros and supplies over 1,000 global customers, including multinational corporations and local market leaders. The division has 1,300 employees.

Constantia Flexibles recently acquired the labels company Pemara in Southeast Asia, the flexible packaging company Afripack in South Africa, and the pharmaceutical packaging company Oai Hung in Vietnam.
