Diam Group, key leader in point-of-sale merchandising in the Perfumes, Beauty and Luxury industries, intends to become a world actor in Luxury Packaging. To this end, Diam Pack, which has already acquired MR Cartonnage Numérique in September 2017, has launched exclusive negotiations for acquiring a majority share of Verpack Group, European leader for set-up boxes and folded cartons for Luxury, Perfumes and Wines and Spirits. Thanks to its five industrial sites – 4 in France and 1 in Tunisia –, Verpack caters to the most demanding clients on the market.
Diam Pack will seek to provide a comprehensive range of offers to clients, covering small to large runs and encompassing set-up boxes as well as tin, wooden and multi-material boxes.
According to Stephane Viers, “Verpack is a family business with strong values. We have been looking for a partner to expand internationally and offer clients superior service, as well as a wide range of superior and innovative solutions. Through its values, customer focus and global position, Diam is ideally positioned to accompany Verpack’s development.”
According to Michel Vaissaire, “Our priority is to provide our clients with complementary products and services in a world in constant evolution. Thanks to the acquisition of MRC in September and Verpack today, Diam Pack has become a key actor in the carton packaging business. Through its excellent and growing team and Stephane’s decision to contribute his expertise to our project, DIAM Pack has made key steps in fulfilling its ambition to provide our clients with the services they require, anywhere they want.”
