“Our acquisitions of Zuckerman Honickman, a name synonymous with best-in-class beverage packaging, and Vessel Packaging, a leading Canadian value-added distributor of aluminum cans, bolster our ability to serve beverage customers with expanded offerings and services across North America,” said Court Carruthers, president & CEO, TricorBraun. “We are incredibly excited to welcome the ZH and Vessel teams to the TricorBraun family and look forward to investing in their continued growth.”
All ZH and Vessel team members—including ZH President Michael Zuckerman, SVP of Strategy & Development Lorne Paskin, and VP of Operations Jon Zuckerman, and Vessel Packaging CEO Matt Leslie and COO Mitchell Evanecz—will remain with TricorBraun. The companies will operate as separate, stand-alone businesses, and the teams will continue to work out of their existing locations. Effective immediately, the companies will be known as Zuckerman Honickman, a TricorBraun company, and Vessel Packaging, a TricorBraun company.
