All of Verrerie Calvet’s product lines are now available to all customers of Berlin Packaging, Bruni Glass, and Bruni Erben.
Verrerie Calvet marks Berlin’s ninth acquisition since 2010 and the third in Europe since 2016.
“We are excited to become part of the Berlin Packaging family and to embrace our Bruni Glass colleagues,” said brothers Stéphan and Eric Calvet, owners, Verrerie Calvet.
“We are proud of what we have built, and we know this partnership will bring much more opportunity for our customers and employees.”
The Calvet brothers will continue at the firm and all Verrerie Calvet employees will remain with the business.
“Berlin Packaging has enjoyed tremendous growth in North America and Europe. As we move forward, I see many opportunities to continue our growth and to acquire the best companies in the packaging space,” added Andrew Berlin, CEO, Berlin Packaging.
“Verrerie Calvet will be another avenue for us to create jobs, as we have done already around the world.”
Verrerie Calvet supplies packaging for wine, spirits, olive oil, gourmet seasonings, marinades and sauces in glass bottles and jars, metal containers, closures, specialty boxes and bags.
The company also offers glass customization and decoration, including an in-house screen-printing service.
