Berlin Packaging has bought Dutch glass food and beverage packaging supplier Vinkova.

It is Berlin’s eighth acquisition in Europe since 2016 and strengthens the company’s glass offering in northern Europe.

Vinkova has been a supplier for more than 50 years and has strong relationships with glass manufacturers.

Vinkova’s customers now have access to Berlin’s packaging offering, which includes 40,000 SKUs, 130 sales and warehouse locations and innovation centres on two continents.

“Acquiring an established food and beverage packaging supplier provides tremendous cross selling opportunities for our high-end speciality glass in northern Europe,” said Paolo Recrosio, CEO of Berlin Packaging Europe.

Bill Hayes, CEO and President of Berlin Packaging, said: “Beyond solidifying our northern European positioning, this acquisition gives us the ability to help customers increase their bottom lines and strengthens our supplier partnerships, as we continue to grow our businesses together.”

All employees and locations will be retained.
