NPP is delighted to announce the acquisition of Active Packaging Limited on 31st January 2024.

Active Packaging, based in Omagh, is a business with a 21-year history supplying a broad range of flexible packaging materials to the food, horticultural & industrial sectors throughout the island of Ireland. The company is headed up by Chris Bloomfield and Gary Wallace and has a workforce of 13 people. Their vast portfolio of products includes printed and plain film on the roll, pouches, top & base webs, lidding films, bags, sacks, and industrial stretch hooding.

With this acquisition, NPP aims to leverage the strengths of both entities to deliver enhanced and diversified packaging solutions to its customers.

Customers can expect an expanded range of packaging solutions, driven by a shared commitment to quality, sustainability, and customer satisfaction. The acquisition reaffirms NPP’s commitment to leading the packaging industry and meeting the evolving needs of its customers.

David Duffy, Managing Director of NPP, commented on the acquisition, Active Packaging is an ideal fit for NPP. Its broad product range and accumulated expertise provide the overall business with an unrivalled range of packaging materials. This acquisition also gives NPP a permanent base in Omagh which copper-fastens NPP’s commitment to develop our packaging and systems business across the whole island of Ireland.  We are impressed with Active Packaging’s energy and relentless pursuit of excellent customer service and look forward to working with our new colleagues.

Gary Wallace and Chris Bloomfield, Active Packaging’s Directors, said, “It was important to us that any company that wished to acquire our business, had the same enthusiasm and care for our customers and employees. It didn’t take us long to realise that NPP is the perfect fit to take our business on to the next level. The Active team are excited for the future and with the extra resources NPP bring, we have no doubt great success will follow.
