Wasdell acquires specialist packaging supplier

The acquisition will strengthen Wasdell’s capabilities and product offerings, including 100% recyclable and biodegradable options, in the medical device sector.

The Wasdell Group, a pharmaceutical outsourcing partner, has acquired Planned Packaging Limited & Planned Packaging Films Limited (PPF), a specialist packaging supplier to the medical device and pharmaceutical sectors.

The acquisition will strengthen and expand Wasdell’s capability to be a fully integrated supplier to its growing client base within the life science and medical device sector.

Planned Packaging brings over 40 years’ experience supplying leading global medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies in the UK, Europe and the Americas. The products supplied comply with ISO 11607/Medical Device Reporting (MDR ) requirements and are manufactured in an ISO 8 cleanroom environment.

Vincent Dunne, Wasdell Group CEO commented: “The acquisition of PPF allows the Wasdell Group to vertically integrate into a key commodity area, safeguarding supplies but also expanding our capabilities and product and service offerings.”

The product range includes pre-made easy-peel pouches, high barrier foil films and semi-rigid materials for processing through thermoforming lines. There is also the ability to custom print on a wide range of materials as well as advise customers on the most suitable packaging solution.

As demand for more sustainable materials increases, Planned Packaging is leading the way by introducing new 100% recyclable and biodegradable options.

Martin Tedham, Chairman of the Wasdell Group added: “Planned Packaging is a perfect fit due to its synergies within the existing Wasdell operations, a shared customer base, operating within the same sectors as well as a growing demand for the assembly and packaging of medical devices seen within Wasdell’s outsourced packaging services.

“Customers will benefit from expanded services and competitive prices and the integrations of Planned Packaging into our current operations will be a beneficial and advantageous one for all involved. We are pleased to welcome the Planned Packaging team to the Wasdell family and look forward to working alongside them.”
