Allibert drops Linpac name in post-sale rebrand

Returnable transit packaging specialists Linpac Allibert and Schoeller Arca Systems (SAS) have revealed a new brand name, Schoeller Allibert, after a merger.

The two companies have become a single entity, and claim to be the world’s biggest manufacturer of RTP, since SAS owner One Equity Partners bought Linpac Allibert in early 2012

Schoeller Allibert chief executive Erik De Bokx said: “Linpac Allibert and Schoeller Arca Systems have been operating as sister companies since the acquisition by OEP in March 2012.

“As the two businesses complement each other so well, it made sense to rebrand them as one company, combining not only their strengths, expertise and innovative product ranges but also their names, to create a single world leading reusable transit packaging business.”

He said that customers would benefit from direct access to a broader range of RTP from a single source and would focus more strongly on its full service offering that includes initial logistics cost analysis, bespoke design and production, rental and pooling options and end of life recycling.

Schoeller Allibert is headquartered in the Netherlands and has more than 40 production and sales operations across Europe,  the Americas and Asia.
