Cincinnati-based ProAmpac, a flexible packaging company, acquired Gateway Packaging Co., a flexible packaging and technical products company headquartered in White House, Tenn. Gateway is one of the largest pet food packaging manufacturers in North America, offering a wide array of products, including multiwall bags, stand-up pouches, small- and large-format quad-seal bags, box pouches, roll stock, treat bags and hybrid bags. Gateway’s products are also sold to the human care and institutional markets, ProAmpac said.
“The acquisition of Gateway expands our product offering with the addition of multiwall bags, while also increasing our manufacturing capacity of several pouch formats,” said Greg Tucker, CEO of ProAmpac.
ProAmpac is owned by PPC Partners, Chicago, along with management and other co-investors. With the addition of Gateway, ProAmpac said it has 33 sites globally with nearly 3,700 employees supplying more than 5,000 customers in 90 countries. ProAmpac manufactures flexible packaging for various consumer, retail and industrial goods markets and also provides secure packaging for the transport of cash and valuables. Gateway will be integrated into ProAmpac’s Extrusion and Laminations division, led by division President Tom Loewald.
