Novio merges with Scandinavian packaging
Novio Packaging Group is set to merge with Scandinavian Packaging A/S as part of plans to expand distribution channels into Scandinavia.
This merger will see Scandinavian Packaging become a “member of Novio Packaging,” and it will operate under its present name until 1 January 2019, when it will change to Novio Scandinavia.
As it stands, Novio Packaging Group consists of international packaging distribution companies such as Oosterbeek Packaging B.V., Alpha Packaging International B.V., Maer Flexibles B.V., Maer Hong Kong Ltd. and FehnPolycap GmbH.
This move is expected to broaden the range of services and products on offer, especially in terms of food and pharmaceutical packaging.
Commenting on the merger, directors of Novio Packaging, Marck Jansen and Erik Trum, said: “Now that our territorial range also includes Scandinavia, we will be able to achieve even better European coverage. This move will also increase the international efficiency and buying power of both parties. The values of Scandinavian Packaging – quality, reliability and understanding – will without further doubt strengthen our brand.”
Bjarke Arlø, CEO and partner Scandinavian Packaging, added: “With the support of the Novio Packaging Group, we will be able to continue the growth and development of our business. We can hardly wait to introduce so many new products and services to our Scandinavian customers. It is a perfect match.”
Under the management of Hanne Zinck and Bjarke Arlø, Scandinavian Packaging will continue to develop its business from Borup, Denmark. There are no plans for staff changes.
