Packaging distributor TricorBraun announced that it will acquire PBFY from retail and promotional packaging supplier Pacific Western Sales. PBFY provides flexible packaging services across North America to brands in the food, coffee, tea and health and beauty markets.
“PBFY is an important addition to our industry-leading flexible packaging offerings, enabling us to provide customers with expanded services and supply chain options,” TricorBraun President and CEO Court Carruthers said.
TricorBraun provides stock and custom-printed flexible packaging solutions across 50 countries. Since its founding, TricorBraun has partnered with management teams to acquire 33 packaging companies globally. TricorBraun’s acquisition of PBFY is expected to close later this month. All PBFY team members will remain with TricorBraun. After a transition period, PBFY will integrate with TricorBraun Flex.
