ProMach has acquired Grip-Pak, provider of multipack handle solutions for beverage companies packaging their products in cans or bottles, as well as retailers and wholesale distributors looking to promote or repack their SKUs.

Grip-Pak is an established source of beverage packing supplies and promotional products. Grip-Pak has been manufacturing innovative packaging materials for more than 40 years and offers 100% recyclable, photodegradable, FDA-compliant LDPE ring carriers made in the USA with post-industrial recycled content. The soft ring carriers can be used to either package or repack canned and bottled beverages into two, four, six, and eight-pack configurations.

“The craft beverage marketplace is exploding with new products — not just beer, but wine, spirits, energy drinks and more. Through our Roberts PolyPro product brand, ProMach already had one of the widest lineups of bottle and can handle solutions in the marketplace with both sheet extruded and injection molded HDPE handle solutions that use significantly less plastic than competitive handles,” said Doug Stambaugh, president of ProMach’s global filler & integrated solutions business unit.

With the addition of Grip-Pak’s LDPE handle solutions, ProMach has the broadest portfolio of handle solutions in the marketplace and all are available from a single source, he adds.

Dennis Kuta, president at Grip-Pak, will join ProMach as director of business development for can handles.
