Pregis Corp. has acquired Easypack, a United Kingdom-based protective packaging company founded in 1992, for an undisclosed amount. The deal brings Easypack’s “line of paper void fill, cushioning and block/brace solutions” to Pregis’ product portfolio for the buyer’s North American customers.

As part of the deal, Chicago, Illinois-based Pregis will continue to operate Easypack’s three European manufacturing facilities, including the target’s offices and distribution centers in France and Germany. Easypack employs nearly 70 workers across the U.K. Kevin Baudhuin, Pregis’ chief executive officer, says Easypack’s track record of more than 20 years and “its’s successful expansion into Europe led to the company being awarded the prestigious Queen's Award for International Trade on three occasions.”
