Allied Glass has changed its name to Verallia in the UK.

The name change is part of its integration into the Verallia group after a £315 million acquisition in November last year.

Alan Henderson, CEO of Verallia UK said: “We see this as a fantastic opportunity to further improve our market offering and work in synergy with Verallia to go from strength to strength.”

This acquisition allows Verallia to benefit from Allied Glass’s expertise in premium glass bottles, specifically in the Scotch Whisky and Gin sectors, and its established position on the UK market.

The operation will also allow existing customers of Allied Glass, who transcend across blue chip, traditional and emerging brands, to reap the benefits of the support of an international group.

Patrice Lucas, CEO of Verallia Group, said: “I am delighted to take this new step, which will allow our group to have a solid footprint on the UK market.”
