Weener Plastics Buys Brazilian Firm Orange Products Plasticos

Weener has acquired OPB from its current shareholders Orange Products Inc (OPI) and C-Pack.

Orange Products CEO Paul Sachdev said: "Although OPB enjoyed our customers' support and confidence since 2011, the operation was never able to expand beyond the manufacture of plastic roll-on balls.

“The acquisition by WP will allow OP Brazil to grow its product line and customer base into new markets.”
