ProAmpac, a leading provider of flexible packaging solutions, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Gelpac, a manufacturer specializing in polywoven packaging products and multiwall paper. This strategic move aims to bolster ProAmpac's production capacity and broaden its product portfolio across the United States and Canada.

The acquisition is subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions, with the transaction expected to be finalized in the upcoming weeks.

ProAmpac will acquire Gelpac from an investor consortium led by Namakor, which includes Groupe W Investments and CDPQ. Legal representation for ProAmpac is being provided by Kirkland & Ellis and McMillan, while Fasken Martineau DuMoulin and Bradley are representing Gelpac in the transaction.
