WestRock extends capabilities in cartons with acquisition of UBS

WestRock has acquired UBS Printing Group, extending its footprint on the US West Coast and strengthening its capabilities in carton packaging.

Located in Corona, California, UBS is a specialty printing and packaging company that manufactures high impact cartons, as well as related literature products.

The acquisition of UBS fits with WestRock’s strategy to expand its capabilities and footprint to reflect customer needs. Further, the move supports customers in the beauty and personal care, nutraceutical and media industries. USB will become part of WestRock’s Multi Packaging Solutions business.

Marc Shore, president of WestRock’s Multi Packaging Solutions business, said: ‘UBS is a proven supplier of innovative, decorative, high-impact packaging and has a strong track record of investing in a range of print technologies. With the addition of this business, we will be better able to serve our customers on the West Coast and further increase our offering of high-end, high-impact decorative products. We are delighted to welcome the UBS team into WestRock’s Multi Packaging Solutions family.’
