Klöckner Pentaplast and Berry Plastics Enter into Marketing Alliance


Berry Plastics Group, Inc. – a leading provider of value-added plastic consumer packaging and engineered materials – and Klöckner Pentaplast Group – a global leader in providing packaging, printing, and specialty solutions – announced that the companies recently entered into a marketing alliance to offer innovative form-fill seal packaging solutions, on a global basis to the food, consumer, pharmaceutical, and medical markets. Klöckner Pentaplast manufactures multiple types of forming films used to produce trays, while Berry Plastics manufactures non-forming lid stock films using various sealant chemistries.

“We are very excited to enter into this agreement with Klöckner Pentaplast,” said Greg Kughn, Sales Development Director for Berry Plastics’ Flexible Packaging division. “By marketing our products together, we will serve as a single source for our customers and have the ability to offer a complete solution for some of the most demanding packaging.”

With nearly 100 years of combined experience, Klöckner Pentaplast and Berry Plastics are able to engineer specific solutions to meet customers’ performance criteria, including seal and peel, gas barrier, clarity, heat resistance, and post-consumer recycled content.

“By forming an alliance to combine the skills and talents of our two companies, we can immediately offer the market an extensive portfolio of packaging solutions,” said Jeffrey Best, Director of Strategic Business Development for Klöckner Pentaplast. “The scale and capabilities of the two companies provide a great platform for creating value for customers and driving innovative packaging development and is another example where Klöckner Pentaplast is co-developing innovative products, solutions and business models to better serve our customers.”
