Kite Packaging has announced the completion of a transaction with the administrators of Golden Valley Pallet Wrap Specialists, in which Kite has acquired the business, its goodwill, and certain assets of Golden Valley. As part of the deal, Kite Packaging will not assume any of the liabilities of Golden Valley.
The Golden Valley Pallet Wrap Specialists business will transfer to Kite’s Coventry site, from which Kite will operate a specialist stretchfilm unit. The employees of Golden Valley, who are joining Kite, are expected to operate from Kite’s Coventry site, following closure of the Golden Valley facility at Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.
Kite Packaging’s customers are large users of stretchfilm, and the acquisition of the business of Golden Valley will give Kite improved technical expertise in this product, especially the new generation of nano films.
Kite will also now have the knowledge and resource to be able to do comprehensive audits of stretchfilm use, and efficiencies for existing and prospective customers.
