ProAmpac has announced that Coating Excellence International (CEI) will merge into its Prolamina brand to create a unified extrusion division, a change that reflects the combined capabilities of ProAmpac’s extrusion division and better enables the company to leverage synergies with its other brand divisions.

ProAmpac acquired CEI in late 2015. 

As a flexible packaging and technical products company, based in Wrightstown, Wisconsin, CEI specializes in wide web extrusion coating and laminating of film, foil, paperboard and nonwovens. This expertise, coupled with Prolamina’s technology-driven, innovative, flexible packaging solutions, creates a leading North American packaging division serving the food, medical and specialty markets.

“Combining these brands unites ProAmpac’s extrusion division, allowing us to better leverage our expertise in laminations,” says Greg Tucker, ProAmpac CEO. “We brought together two exceptional organizations to create a world-class division. Customers can expect expanded capabilities, extra capacity and outstanding service from the joined Prolamina brand.”

Formed through the recent merger of Prolamina Corporation, Ampac Packaging LLC and Coating Excellence International, ProAmpac primarily operates under the Prolamina, Ampac and Tulsack brands. Together, these brands offer enhanced products unparalleled in the food, pet care and medical markets, along with secure packaging for cash management, loss prevention and transportation of valuables and documents, and retail shopping bags.
