Headquartered in Green Bay, WI, WS Packaging Group provides labels and packaging solutions for the food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, and pharmaceutical markets. WS Packaging Group, Inc. operates 17 manufacturing facilities and produces high-quality packaging products.
The company, which primarily markets pressure sensitive labeling products, is one of North America’s leading label converters, providing packaging, shopper promotion and branding solutions that help its customers increase shelf impact, brand consistency and shopper engagement for the products they sell to end consumers.
“WS Packaging Group has great potential, and we look forward to working closely with the company’s management team, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders,” said Platinum Equity principal Jason Price.
Platinum Equity has experience in the packaging sector and recently owned Mactac, one of WS Packaging Group’s suppliers of pressure sensitive materials.
WS Packaging Group CEO Dean Wimer is remaining with the company to lead the business.
“We thank the team at J.W. Childs Associates for the guidance and support of the business under its ownership. We’re excited to work with Platinum Equity, who brings a fresh perspective, with new energy and focus to the table,” said Wimer. “They know our industry well and have the operational and financial resources we need to help maximize our company’s potential.”
