Unisource Worldwide announced late last week that its Unisource Global Solutions division has completed the asset acquisition of Pakit Sweden AB, which is a leading international developer of molded fiber solutions for the packaging industry. Says a company press release, via the Mother Ship:
The acquisition by Unisource includes the purchase of equipment that uses cellulose fibers to manufacture molded fiber packaging, replacing the use of plastic trays, bottles, containers, carriers and other conventional petroleum-based packaging. The equipment also uses considerably less energy than current packaging processes and reduces the use of water and emissions.
Unisource Global Solutions itself provides innovative packaging design and engineering solutions that emphasize rapidly renewable materials.
