ProAmpac, a leader in flexible packaging and material science, today announced that it has acquired Specialty Packaging, Inc. (“Specialty Packaging”), a family-owned manufacturer of specialty paper, film and foil packaging products for the fast food and food services industries.
The addition of Specialty Packaging’s complementary product portfolio and manufacturing capabilities extends ProAmpac’s reach with food service customers and expands its footprint to the southwestern United States.

I am eager to welcome the Specialty Packaging team to the ProAmpac family. We are excited to expand our customer relationships and enhance our manufacturing presence as we work together to strengthen our position as an industry leader in specialty, sustainable packaging.”
