United Caps acquires Spanish closure manufacturer Embalatap

United Caps has acquired the Spanish closure manufacturer Embalatap, for an undisclosed fee.

The deal extends the Luxembourg-based international manufacturer of caps and closures’ product portfolio, particularly its closures for edible oils typically used in the Southern European market.

Its custom-designed caps and closure solutions have propelled growth in the high single digits since its 2015 rebranding, with a significant percentage of production being bespoke products that are designed to meet customer needs for exceptional appearance and ease of use both in the filling line and for the consumer.

Embalatap, based in Sopelana, Spain, was founded in 1973. With a turnover of €5.6m and 30 employees, the company primarily specialises in caps and closures for edible oils and vinegar.

The company produces in excess of a half billion caps and closures annually.

Benoît Henckes, chief executive of United Caps, said: “By incorporating Embalatap solutions into our portfolio, we give customers a one-stop shopping experience for a broader range of closure solutions. Since there is virtually no overlap in customers or product lines we don’t anticipate discontinuing products from either company in the near term.”
