Medication Packaging Holdco Limited, owners of Medica Packaging Limited, a folding cartons and leaflet manufacturer, based in Crewe, Cheshire, is pleased to announce the acquisition of F.G. Curtis plc, a folding carton manufacturer based in Redhill, Surrey. The Curtis business has been operating for over 80 years, and specialises in the manufacture of folding cartons for the cosmetics and beauty markets. This successful business is a market leader in supplying sustainable packaging, supported by a strong ethos of environmental excellence achieved through conventional manufacturing methods and using the latest sustainable materials and technology.

F.G. Curtis will continue to be led by the current management team, headed up by James Williams, Managing Director, Ben Curtis, Commercial Director and Steve Mallet, Sales Director.

Gerard Harford and Mark Stokes, Directors of Medication Packaging Holdco Limited and Medica Packaging Limited, will also join the Curtis Board of Directors.

"This acquisition is complimentary to the Medica business, the larger Group will give both businesses a stronger market presence and there are opportunities to learn from each other's strengths. The Curtis team have many years of knowledge and experience in the folding cartons sector and have built a very successful business", said Harford.

Williams commented, "For the Curtis Family and senior management team it was important to find the best possible partner to help our continued growth, providing security and stability for the Curtis Team. We could not be more pleased than to be acquired by Medica Packaging, two long established British carton companies coming together to forge a bright future. We very much look forward to working with Gerard and his team"

F.G. Curtis and Medica Packaging will continue to trade under their existing names, reflecting the strong identity and reputation both businesses have already established.

The deal has been facilitated by financial support from Harwood Capital.

Additional funding was provided by Shawbrook Bank.
