Doug Kopp, Kopco’s chairman and founder, says that Techpak is now the Flexible Packaging Division of Kopco Graphics. “Having known Jerry Parish for more than 20 years and having worked with Techpak on various projects during that time, I am very excited that Kopco is able to offer the converting and management expertise of both companies to our current and future customers. Since 1984, Techpak has provided a high level of quality flexible packaging products. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers a broader range of products for their packaging requirements through this acquisition.”

Parish, President of Techpak, adds, “We’re pleased with this acquisition. The additional purchasing and sales power will allow us to expand our marketing agenda both domestically and internationally.” The Techpak management and production team will continue to operate out of the Franklin, OH, location.
