Acquisition by SCG Packaging (SCGP)
SCG Packaging announces acquisition of UK-based Go-Pak
Despite the numerous challenges of 2020, Go-Pak has adapted, seen continued growth and forged new alliances. As of today, we can announce the latest step in our journey with the acquisition by SCG Packaging (SCGP), the Thailand-based total packaging solution provider. Our business and products range complements SCGP’s extremely well, making this pairing the perfect choice whilst offering benefits to both current and future customers.
It will be business as usual for Go-Pak as we maintain our current management, operations, customers, and brand identity, and this deal will further support the company’s continued growth with an enhanced product offering and further market development, whilst helping drive SCGP’s expansion into the UK, European and North American markets.
In the longer term, the shared vision of both Go-Pak and SCGP and passion for sustainability is expected to be a hallmark of the future direction of the business.
Simon Lawley, Go-Pak founder said: “Go-Pak has found the perfect home in joining together with SCG Packaging. Go-Pak has achieved so much as an independently-owned business over the past 11 years. It has been a great journey so far, and our growth strategy and potential will continue to flourish as part of the SCG family. Not only does this make Go-Pak stronger, but it will also allow the business to maximise its full potential as part of SCG Packaging.”
Adam Anderson, Go-Pak Managing Director said: “Joining the SCG family of businesses is a very exciting prospect for Go-Pak. Not only does this mean a continuation of the great service for our customers, but being part of such a large integrated packaging group will enable us to offer further international support and a wider product range for our current and future customers in the UK, Europe and US.”
