News

Berlin Packaging North America today announced the acquisition of Vivid Packaging, an Ohio-based supplier of rigid packaging that does business in 25 states as well as Canada and Mexico. The transaction is Berlin Packaging’s fifth acquisition since 2010 and advances a strategic plan designed to double revenues and earnings by 2017.

The acquisition strengthens Berlin Packaging’s presence in the Midwest by adding an office and warehouses in Cleveland. It also expands Berlin’s team with Vivid personnel skilled in food & beverage, personal & pet care, industrial & household chemicals, and healthcare packaging.

With the addition of Vivid Packaging’s employees and locations in Cleveland, Berlin has over 600 team members and more than 90 sales offices and warehouse locations.

Targets:

  • Expanding the services and specialty offerings available to Vivid’s customers. Berlin provides a wide array of services at no charge in exchange for new packaging business.
  • Enabling Berlin Packaging’s suppliers to reach even more customers. Vivid adds more than 1,000 customers and prospective customers to Berlin’s already large database of qualified packaging buyers, helping suppliers land new business and grow sales.
  • Extending the application of Berlin’s delivery and operational work.

The Vivid Packaging transaction closed on August 31. Berlin Packaging previously acquired Pittsburgh-based All-Pak, Chicago-based Continental Packaging Solutions, Connecticut-based Lerman Container, and California-based United States Container Corporation (USCC).
