Plastribution has acquired Cheshire-based flexible and rigid plastics supplier, Armstrong Bradley, for an undisclosed sum.


According to the company, the acquisition was made to complement its films distribution business, Plasfilms, and “all key staff at Armstrong Bradley are being retained”.

In the short term, the acquisition of Armstrong Bradley will provide Plasfilms with new suppliers, an increase in overall capability, as well as an increase in its customer base.

Alan Moules, Plasfilms’ commercial director, said: “We are excited at the prospects for growth that the acquisition of Armstrong Bradley will provide. The strategic alignment of both businesses will provide better opportunities to exploit sales throughout the UK films, labels and flexible packaging sectors.

“For the foreseeable future both Plasfilms and Armstrong Bradley will operate in parallel, enabling the best route to market,” he added.

Cambridgeshire-based Plasfilms’ current product portfolio includes: shrink films, BOPP, CPP, PET films and Sanzip reclosable zippers.
