Coveris grows CEE pet-food packaging converting operations with acquisition of DK LAMIN in Poland


Three years after establishing its first manufacturing site in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), Coveris is further expanding its footprint by accessing the strongest market in the region, Poland. Converter D.K. LAMIN will be integrated into the Coveris network and together with Coveris Pirt√≥ in Hungary, create a hub for high-tech packaging production in Eastern Europe. 

Founded in 1990, D.K. LAMIN is an established, fast-growing and well invested manufacturer of high-end, flexible-packaging laminated films and converted products. With its focus on value-added food, pet-food, home and personal-care as well as medical packaging, the expertise and offer of D.K. LAMIN aligns with the existing portfolio of Coveris, especially supporting its growth strategy in pet food. 

"With this deal, D.K. LAMIN is joining an international network which will support our growth and secure our solid long-term future. The reliable and strong structure of Coveris will also be a great advantage to our customers," says Pawel Daniluk, MD of D.K. LAMIN. 

"We are already a very strong player in the pet-food market and with D.K. LAMIN as the newest member of the Coveris Group, we see a huge growth potential by adding high-value capacity and expertise to our existing business. It is a site with strong focus on a fast-growing domestic market. Together with Pawel Danilu, the former owner who is staying on board as managing director, we are looking to further invest and leverage its potential on the way forward," adds Christian Kolarik, CEO of Coveris.
