Harpak, Inc. and ULMA Packaging Systems, Inc., based in Ball Ground, Ga., completed their merger on July 19. Going forward, the new company will be named Harpak-ULMA Packaging, LLC.
"We are very excited to realize the opportunity this combined enterprise presents. Harpak has focused on integrated custom packaging solutions. ULMA brings with it the opportunity to offer customers more options as to the form of primary packaging. The advantage for both companies' customers is that while Harpak has invested significantly in tray sealing, filling and secondary packaging, ULMA has made significant investment in flow wrapping, form/fill/seal and shrink wrap and vertical sealers. The combination of these assets and capabilities will allow the merged company to offer our customers a wider range of fully integrated packaging solutions,” said Linda Harlfinger, president of South Easton, Mass.-based Harpak.
