“This is an important acquisition, which supports our strategy of continuing to consolidate and grow our core market positions,” said RPC chief executive Ron Marsh. “The company has a strong and experienced management team who will be able to take the business forward, benefiting from the synergies within the group to offer a comprehensive range of value-added packaging to both existing and new customers.”
