Zeus CEO Keith Ockenden said: “We set up Zeus Poland in 2010 with revenues now exceeding €5m and a full range of packaging solutions for food production, retail, manufacturing, e-commerce and 3PL organisations. The acquisition of Polpack is a natural fit for our Poland operation, offering synergies to combine scale, leverage operational efficiencies and expand our product and service offering to our collective client base.”

Polpack’s capabilities in the provision of packaging and machinery solutions compliments our strategy to diversify our offering across Europe within the industrial and transit packaging sector enabling us to offer clients options to consolidate supply chains and leverage greater value.”
Polpack owner Wojciech Zdzieborski said: “Today is a new step in the Polpack journey. We are excited to work with Zeus, combining their global reach and infrastructure with our experience, technical skills, knowledge and understanding of customer needs in packaging machinery, developing and manufacturing. This partnership will improve productivity, enhance efficiencies and deliver greater value to our customers.”
Zeus founder Brian O’Sullivan added: “Our journey over the years has provided opportunities to strengthen our capability, widen our offering and learn new disciplines. The addition of the Polpack businesses into our family will complement the range of solutions we provide our customers, enhance our technical capability within Poland and strengthen resources throughout Europe.”
