US converter Kopco Graphics has acquired Techpak, located in Franklin, Ohio. Techpak is a converter of flexible packaging, specializing in mid-web flexographic printing, hot melt/heat sealed coatings and laminations. Techpak will now be the flexible packaging division of Kopco Graphics.

Kopco Graphics is a pressure sensitive label manufacturer with locations in Fairfield, Ohio, and Bradenton, Florida. Kopco Graphics is a three-time award winner of the Eugene Singer Award for being one of the best managed printing companies according to North American trade association TLMI.

Techpak’s product line includes food pouches, candy wraps, pharmaceutical applications, spiral labels, chewing gum packaging, film laminations, bar soap wrappers, and tissue and foil laminations for the soap industry. 

Doug Kopp, Kopco chairman and founder, said: ‘Having known Jerry Parish for over 20 years and having worked with Techpak on various projects during that time, I am very excited that Kopco is able to offer the converting and management expertise of both companies to our current and future customers. Since 1984 Techpak has provided a high level of unique, quality flexible packaging products. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers a broader range of products for their packaging requirements through this acquisition.’

Jerry Parish, president of Techpak, said: ‘We’re pleased with this acquisition as the additional purchasing and sales power will allow us to expand our marketing agenda both domestically and internationally.’

The same Techpak management and production team will continue to operate out of the Franklin, Ohio location.
