Packaging manufacturer Treform
Packaging AB in Landskrona continues to grow by another acquisition. From
November 1st, the Helsingborg based packaging trader PacPortalen AB
and its former CEO and owner Stefan Meltzer are an integral part of Treform. As
a result of the acquisition, Treform’s sales team will grow stronger and its
customers will gain direct access to a wide range of off-the-shelf packaging products.
When Treform acquired JiHå Plast AB back in June 2020, it became Sweden’s largest and leading producer of thermoformed packaging solutions for the food industry. Being number one puts greater demands on the sales force to reach both existing and potentially new customers all across the Nordics. Finding the right candidate to strengthen the team has however not been easy. Then Stefan Meltzer at PacPortal showed up.Stefan and I met more or less by chance, Thomas Olsson, CEO at Treform explains.
– Our paths crossed when we at Treform were shifting focus in the production to meet the increasing demand of healthcare worker protection products due to the pandemic. Already after the first few chats, it was clear to both of us that Stefan would be a perfect match to strengthen Treform and its sales team. We saw an opportunity to help each other to the next level in our respective companies, Olsson says.
The strength and main focus for Treform have always been tailored, customer specific packaging solutions and on-demand production. Standard products kept in stock have not been Treform’s thing – except perhaps in plans and strategies. For a future where customers could turn to Treform also when looking for off-the-shelf packaging goods. Products such as those carried by PacPortal.
– The acquisition feels like a true win-win, Stefan Meltzer says. For the customers of PacPortal, it will be more or less business as usual, but with new opportunities as a pleasant bonus. On top of the wide range of standard products they are used to, they will from now on also have the possibility to order unique, custom made packaging solutions in a broad range of materials from the same supplier, he concludes.
