Name change for reusable transit packaging specialist

Linpac Allibert and Schoeller Arca Systems have joined together and been rebranded as Schoeller Allibert.

The move follows the acquisition of Linpac Allibert by One Equity Partners, the controlling SAS stakeholder, nine months ago.

The deal makes Schoeller Allibert the world’s largest manufacturer of reusable plastic packaging for materials handling.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, it has more than 40 production and sales operations in across Europe, America and Asia.

The product range includes foldable large and small containers, bulk containers, plastic pallets, stackable and nesting crates as well as dollies and lids. The range includes the iconic Maxinest tray, Maxipac bulk unit and the Magnum Optimum. In addition, Schoeller Allibert also offers tailor made systems for specific customers and industries.

Chief executive officer Erik De Bokx said: “Linpac Allibert and Schoeller Arca Systems have been operating as sister companies since the acquisition by OEP in March 2012. As the two businesses complement each other so well, it made sense to rebrand them as one company, combining not only their strengths, expertise and innovative product ranges but also their names, to create a single world leading reusable transit packaging business.”
