ProAmpac completes purchase of Bonita Pioneer Packaging Products

Cincinnati, OH-based  flexible-packaging converter ProAmpac has wrapped its acquisition of OR-based Bonita Pioneer Packaging Products (Bonita). Specializing in paper-packaging products including custom and stock shopping bags, merchandise bags, foodservice packaging, and folding cartons, Bonita products complement ProAmpac’s existing flex-pack offerings. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The acquisition of Bonita expands ProAmpac’s paper-packaging manufacturing footprint in the Western and Southeastern US, creating more value and optimizing services for our customers,” says ProAmpac CEO Greg Tucker.
ProAmpac is owned by Pritzker Group Private Capital along with management and co-investors. With the addition of Bonita, ProAmpac now has 27 manufacturing sites globally with nearly 3,300 employees supplying more than 5,000 customers in 90 countries. ProAmpac primarily manufactures products serving the food, pet-care, healthcare, lawn-care, and retail markets as well as providing secure packaging for the transport of cash and valuables.
When founded in Portland, OR, in 1989, Bonita Packaging Products was the only full-line retail packaging supplier in the US. The business will become part of the ProAmpac brand and operate as part of the US Flexibles Div., led by President Tom Geyer.
