Founded over thirty years ago, UNI Packaging is a family company that produces and processes flexible packaging solutions for the food industry. Its strong and aggressive investment policy allowed it to develop its product range and strengthen its position in more than 15 countries across Europe and the emerging markets. UNI Packaging’s continued innovation drive allows it to meet the ever changing market needs and customer requirements. Over 2M euros is spent annually on research and development.
Ranking among the top 20 European plastic packaging manufacturers, UNI Packaging is aiming to reach 200 M€ turnover by 2020. To achieve this objective, it plans to massively develop its activities throughout Europe, not only through organic but also external growth.
With this aim in mind, UNI Packaging called upon the services of Chetwode in February 2015, to assist in obtaining the financing required to support its development strategy. The experience in structuring and funding of Chetwode and its partner Acofi meant that by July 2015, a sale & leaseback funding for 3,77M€ was in place, allowing UNI Packaging to develop its activities in Europe, namely through new acquisitions.
Implemented via Berivo, a leasing company specialised in the financing of industrial equipment and established by Chetwode and Acofi in July 2014, this financing will allow UNI Packaging to further expand on the international stage and strengthen its position in the packaging marketplace.
