Tekni-Plex boosts manufacturing capability, food tray portfolio with Commodore acquisition

Tekni-Plex boosts manufacturing capability-food tray portfolio

Tekni-Plex, a US manufacturer of innovative packaging materials, medical compounds and precision-crafted medical tubing solutions, has acquired New York-based Commodore Plastics and Commodore Technology under a newly-formed subsidiary, Dolco LLC. The Commodore purchase is the eighth acquisition Tekni-Plex has made in the past four years.

Commodore Plastics specialises in wide range of traditional and custom polystyrene (PS) foam trays, including padded food processor, supermarket and industrial trays. Commodore Technology manufactures PS foam extrusion systems, dies, thermoformers, trim systems and other moulds and equipment to support its sister company's production requirements. It also sells its equipment to manufacturers outside North America.

Both entities will become part of Tekni-Plex’s Dolco Packaging, the largest producer of foam egg carton trays in the US. It also produces standard and custom PS trays for food processing, fruit and other applications, as well as PET egg cartons and mushroom tills, making the acquisition complementary to Dolco's existing portfolio.
