Australia-headquartered packaging giant Amcor’s rigid plastics unit in the US has purchased Plastic Moulders Ltd, a privately held Toronto-based custom precision moulding business.

“This acquisition will continue our growth strategy,” said Mike Schmitt, Amcor Rigid Plastics President. “Plastic Moulders’ technologies and superior technical capabilities will strengthen our business portfolio. We will be able to offer additional innovative products and services to customers globally.”

Plastic Moulders specialises in providing design, engineering, moulding and assembly services for consumer packaged goods customers in the health, beauty, food, pharmaceutical and industrial markets.

“We look forward to welcoming the Plastic Moulders employees to Amcor Rigid Plastics,” Schmitt said. “Our combined focus will remain on delivering the highest levels of quality and service to all customers as we move forward.”
