Tekni-Plex, Inc. has acquired the assets of BrunaSeals, Doral, Florida, a leading producer of induction seals and foam closure liners for beverage, cosmetics, pharma and household and industrial chemical products. Going forward, BrunaSeals will become part of Tri-Seal, Tekni-Plex’s global closure liners business unit.
BrunaSeals offers expertise in embossing, printing, foil stamping, die cutting, removal and closure lining capabilities. The company markets its core induction seal and foam closure liners under the ProTecSeals® brand. BrunaSeals’ most recent product innovations include the LuxeSeal® and SniffSeal® specialty platforms that provide brand owners with unique sensory and shelf-presence attributes. Founded in 1986 to service Latin American liner and gasket needs, the company has expanded its product portfolio and geographic reach over the past three decades.
“BrunaSeal’s expertise in supporting the Latin American market place, coupled with its innovative product line, will help further expand the global Tri-Seal closure liner business,’ said David Andrulonis, senior vice president and general manager, Tri-Seal. “The combined capabilities create an even stronger liners portfolio from which to service brand owners around the world.”
Juan Bruna, president and founder of BrunaSeals will support the Tri-Seal business unit in future business development efforts.
“We couldn’t be happier to become part of a leading global manufacturer who is committed to growing its closure liner and seal business. Our collective customers will benefit significantly from this acquisition,” Bruna said.
BrunaSeals is now the fourth closure liner business Tekni-Plex has acquired in the past four years. The three previous acquisitions were Sancap, Alliance, Ohio; Ghiya Extrusions, Ahmedabad, India, and Tech-Seal, Triadelphia, West Virginia.
