Lamination film specialist Zulu Packaging Limited has been acquired by Premier Paper Group.

Zulu Packaging provides flexible packaging films for direct food contact, lamination films for carton producers and a stock range of lamination films for commercial print. The company’s lamination films are widely used in post-production print finishing of litho, digital and flexo printed media to protect the print and to enhance the appearance. 

Zulu Packaging will now become a specialist division of the Premier group and will be known as Premier Lamination Films.

Michael Beever, managing director, said, ‘I am delighted to welcome Zulu Packaging to Premier. Lamination films are sold very successfully in many countries across the wider JPP group and we have used this experience to identify opportunities to further expand our product offer to existing and new customers.

‘Many of our existing commercial print customers can now source their lamination film requirements from Premier with a range of films available from stock that can be delivered with their paper order. It will also allow us to provide packaging converters with a greater choice of products. From a business perspective the acquisition makes good sense.’

Steve Creates, managing director at Zulu Packaging added, ‘We are delighted to be joining Premier and the wider JPP family. I am looking forward to working with the Premier teams to grow our business together and take our products to new areas of the market.’
