Press release date: February 14, 2014

Flex Products Will Continue Producing in Carlstadt, NJ

St. Louis, MO –  VisiPak, a leading manufacturer of clear plastic packaging, has successfully completed the acquisition of Flex Products of Carlstadt, New Jersey, a manufacturer of clear plastic packaging containers.  The move expands VisiPak’s current line of plastic tube containers to include additional shapes, sizes and closure styles while increasing its manufacturing capacity.  Both companies have been manufacturing packaging products for over 50 years and will continue to operate independent manufacturing facilities that utilize extrusion, thermoforming and injection molding processes.  “This acquisition correlates directly with our long-term strategies regarding geographic and market reach,” said Brad Philip, President and COO of Sinclair Rush, Inc. Mr. Philip continued, “The synergies created by the two companies allows us to offer the broadest line of packaging products and related services, from concept to completion, of anyone in the industry.”

An additional benefit of the acquisition is that Flex Products’ customer base will now have access to VisiPak’s complete line of packaging solutions including its own line of plastic container packaging, clear folding cartons, and flexible vinyl caps for use with its plastic containers. In addition, VisiPak manufactures plastic clamshell packaging, blister packs, and packaging trays using the thermoforming process. Both companies will continue to offer decorating, design services, contract packaging, assembly and fulfillment services.

Jeff Barket, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sinclair & Rush, Inc., stated, “Visipak and Flex Products share several key fundamentals, such as a vision for differentiated growth in the marketplace, strong technology platforms, and a high performance culture committed to operational excellence and providing quality products. Through this acquisition, we expect to accelerate our growth efforts and expand our presence as one of the largest plastic container manufacturers in North America.”
