Induplast has acquired Verve. Along with Vexel, acquired by Induplast in July, the combination of the 3 Italian companies creates a complementary group with a diversified cosmetic and personal care product portfolio.
Induplast SpA, based in Bolgare, is an international leader in the production of packaging for cosmetics including stick containers, lip balm containers and jars, while Vedano Olona-based Verve SpA is active in the production and marketing of bottles, tottles and jars.
The combination of Induplast, Vexel and Verve will offer customers increased production technologies of injection molding, blow molding and stretch blow molding, with an expanded catalog of packaging products and distribution channels, across three production and logistic sites, plus a modern workshop for the creation of molds.
Upon completion of the acquisition, both Verve and Vexel will be controlled by the Induplast Group.
