Sancoa & TubeDec have common shareholders and supply labels and plastic tubes to home & personal care customers in North America.

CCL Industries Inc. has signed a binding agreement to acquire Sancoa & TubeDec, privately owned companies with common shareholders supplying labels and plastic tubes to home & personal care customers in North America from three plants located in New Jersey and one in Ohio. The agreed purchase price is $71 million including the settlement of financial debt. Closing is scheduled during the first quarter of 2014 subject to customary completion conditions.

Over three decades he pioneered numerous, innovative label and tube decorating technologies that are globally recognized by customers, suppliers and peers. We are very pleased Joe chose us as a legacy home for the business that he founded and welcome both him and his management team on their joining CCL; making the integration process seamless for our combined organization and customers."

Martin concludes, "We expect to unlock many financial and operational synergies which we will announce in more detail at the closing of the transaction later this quarter."
