Peak Rock Capital, a middle-market private investment firm, announced today that it has acquired AMB SpA, a manufacturer of rigid and flexible films for use in food packaging, in partnership with the Marin family, AMB’s founders and current owners, and the management team of AMB.

“The investment by Peak Rock is another huge step in our growth plans, perhaps the largest in our Company’s history. Over the past 50 years, AMB has become a leader in its space through innovation, talented people and an unwavering focus on our defined vision. Peak Rock has been an active investor in our market historically and truly understands not only our business but the future growth potential of the industry,” said Bruno Marin, chief executive officer of AMB.

Anthony DiSimone, CEO of Peak Rock, added, “This transaction exemplifies Peak Rock’s extensive experience in investing in founder and family-owned companies.  Given our deep expertise in the packaging segment, we will continue to seek additional platform investments in the industry across Europe and North America, as well as add-on acquisitions that we believe could benefit from our ability to drive rapid growth and improve performance.”
