Newly merged Mercury Packaging & CPS Flexibles unveil name change
Following the recent merger between Mercury Packaging and CPS Flexibles, the companies have announced a name change to Fusion Flexibles Limited with immediate effect.
It is hoped that the name change will complete the integration of the two businesses and reinforce its position as one of the UK’s leading flexible packaging manufacturers for the food industry.
The merged company, which continues to operate from two manufacturing facilities, allegedly records an annual turnover of £16million and a forecasted growth of 25% over three years.
Simon Rose, Fusion Flexibles’ managing director, says, “Considerable thought and debate has gone into the decision to adopt one name especially as both Mercury Packaging and CPS Flexibles were strong and long-established brands.
“However, it seemed a logical next step in the integration of the businesses and the benefits of operating under one name ultimately outweighed any negatives.
“From a human point of view, we believe it will help employees continue to embrace the union. For customers, it will be simpler and easier to do business with us, and they will benefit from better access to high quality products and in-depth experience of key target markets.”
BRC accredited Fusion Flexibles is backed by a senior management team and offers a range of production equipment, including: an eight colour Uteco Onyx flexographic gearless printing press, an eight colour Comexi gearless press, an eight colour Soma Optima flexo press, six extruders and an Uteco Eclipse solventless digital laminator. It also has a variety of converting, slitting and rewinding equipment.
