Berlin Packaging, the world’s largest hybrid packaging supplier, has significantly expanded its Canadian footprint with the acquisition of Consolidated Bottle Corporation, a Canadian packaging supplier. The acquisition enables the combined businesses to offer even more packaging solutions to customers.

Consolidated Bottle has over 110 years of experience supplying plastic, glass and metal containers and closures across various industries, including personal care, pharmaceutical, cannabis, food, beverage and industrial.

Berlin Packaging is a global supplier of rigid packaging products and services. In 2016, the company established a Montreal location to manufacture specialty glass packaging for food, spirits and wine.

All employees and locations of Consolidated Bottle will be retained. Following the acquisition, the company will be called Consolidated Bottle Corporation, a Berlin Packaging company.
