"This acquisition is great news for the ongoing development of our flexible packaging division, an important area of growth for the Corporation," says François Olivier, president/CEO of TC Transcontinental. "The acquisition of Robbie Manufacturing is strategic on two fronts. It allows us to enter into two new packaging niches while also creating opportunities for synergies with our existing facilities nearby. The company shares TC Transcontinental's values and fosters a similar culture, putting their customers at the heart of everything they do. We're pleased to welcome our new employees who will contribute to TC Transcontinental's growth and success."
"It's a privilege for Robbie Manufacturing and the entire team to join the ranks of TC Transcontinental, a solid, well-established family-controlled corporation led by seasoned leaders and driven by a vision for the future," adds Irv Robinson, Robbie Manufacturing's co-founder and CEO. "TC Transcontinental's vast entrepreneurial experience will undoubtedly help Robbie Manufacturing grow and remain a supplier of choice for its customers. We've worked hard to build our reputation over the years, and we know that TC Transcontinental will continue in this vein while respecting the values that sustain our company."
TC Transcontinental's first strategic acquisition in the flexible-packaging converting sector was Capri Packaging, in 2014. In 2015, the company doubled its revenues in this area by purchasing Ultra Flex Packaging Corp.
