Esterform Acquires Constar UK

ESTERFORM ACQUISITION OF CONSTAR SUPPORTS EXPANSION PLANS

Esterform Packaging Limited has announced that they have acquired the business of Constar UK based at Sherburn-in Elmet near York.

Esterform manufactures 1.5 billion PET preforms and containers from its two sites in Tenbury Wells and Leeds. This acquisition will take the group’s overall capability to in excess of 3 billion units.

Esterform’s founder Mark Tyne said, ”The two companies manufacture very similar products with a good deal of duplicate tooling, so it makes perfect sense to merge Constar into the Esterform group”. This form of expansion is not new to Esterform who have acquired both Able Industries and Pet Plas Packaging since its formation in 2000.

The acquisition of Constar goes alongside Esterform’s announcement three weeks ago of their £8 million investment in state of the art manufacturing technology.
