Solidus acquires Dutch producer of partitions and inserts GMP Partitions
Oude Pekela, March 5, 2021 – Today Solidus announces the acquisition of GMP Partitions, the largest producer of partitions and inserts in the Netherlands. The acquisition, which was completed on January 15, signifies a strategic investment to further integrate and broaden the product portfolio of the leading producer of sustainable fiber-based board and packaging solutions for food & beverage, consumer goods and industrial applications.
GMP Partitions was acquired from its former private owners. Solidus is pleased with the continued commitment and leadership of Richard Sas as General Manager of GMP Partitions, as his extensive knowledge will guarantee continuity and open further growth potential in this market.
Located in Nijkerk (the Netherlands), GMP Partitions supplies partitions and inserts to European end markets like beer, spirits and glassware. All partitions and inserts are produced from solid board due to the strength characteristics and logistical advantages.
The strategic acquisition is another important step in the further vertical integration within Solidus. “We will continue to optimize our service to customers, offer a broader portfolio of sustainable board and packaging products and strengthen our leading position in the solid board industry in Europe”, CEO Dieter Bergner said.
