ProAmpac Acquires Gateway Packaging

CINCINNATI, OH | ProAmpac announces the acquisition of Gateway Packaging Company, a flexible packaging and technical products company headquartered in White House, TN. Gateway reportedly is one of the largest pet food packaging manufacturers in North America offering a wide array of products including multiwall bags, stand-up pouches, small- and large-format quad-seal bags, box pouches, rollstock, treat bags, and hybrid bags. Gateway’s products are also sold to the human care and institutional markets.

Says ProAmpac CEO Greg Tucker, “The acquisition of Gateway expands our product offering with the addition of multiwall bags while also increasing our manufacturing capacity of several pouch formats. Gateway will allow us to deliver even more value and services to our customers.”

ProAmpac is owned by PPC Partners along with management and other co-investors. With the addition of Gateway, ProAmpac has 33 sites globally with nearly 3,700 employees supplying more than 5,000 customers in 90 countries. ProAmpac manufactures flexible packaging for various consumer, retail, and industrial goods markets and also provides secure packaging for the transport of cash and valuables. Gateway will be integrated into ProAmpac’s Extrusion and Laminations division, led by division president Tom Loewald.

“Gateway has a reputation for innovation, responsive customer service, and quality,” says Loewald. “Couple that with our industry-leading converting expertise, and customers now have an unrivaled source for flexible packaging products within ProAmpac.”

Omar Abuaita, president and CEO of Gateway, says, “Gateway’s talented team, multiwall bag converting expertise, and presence in pet and institutional markets will add to ProAmpac’s competencies and existing customer base. This acquisition will create value and opportunity for both organizations.”
