Pyroll has purchased paper and paperboard converter Winpac

Recently established Pyroll Netherlands BV has purchased all the shares of Boxbored Holding BV and its subsidiary Winpac Netherlands BV. Pyroll will take full control Winpac at the end of January 2015. The acquisition strongly supports Pyroll Contract Converting business area’s strategy in expanding its presence in Western Europe.

Winpac is located in Winschoten, in the Northern Netherlands. The location being so close to customers gives a strong foothold for Pyroll in the future. The acquisition has a positive influence on future development of the plant in Winschoten – and also on the whole Contract Converting business area of Pyroll. The plan is to create a state-of-the-art sheeting service facility within three years. By investing heavily in new technology, the idea is to increase capacity and strengthen the already good service capability.

“We are glad that we were able to finalize the acquisition with Mr. Engel Kuiper, whom I want to thank for taking good care of the company during his ownership. It is easier to continue from here, when the strong foundation for sustainable business has been built. We believe that especially service sheeting for paper and paperboard producers in their main market area will increase, and therefore we were encouraged to take a next step in expanding our service network”, says Mr. Reino Uusitalo, the owner and chairman of the board of Pyroll
