The perfect addition to the portfolio: BERICAP has acquired aluminum closure expert Mala

BERICAP, one of the leading global manufacturers of plastic closures, has taken over Mala Verschluss-Systeme GmbH, thereby extending its product portfolio to include aluminum closures. Mala is a family owned company based in Bad Liebenstein, Thuringia. In 2020 it generated annual revenue of 40 million euros from the production and sale of aluminum screw cap closures for spirits, wine, non-alcoholic beverages and edible oil. BERICAP and Mala’s business models and product program complement each other perfectly. Whereas BERICAP focuses on the production and sale of plastic closures for the food, beverage and chemical industries, Mala specializes in aluminum roll on pilfer proof (ROPP) and long cap closures for the wine and spirits market. Powerful synergies will be created as a result, delivering benefits to both companies. Mala gains access to new markets and BERICAP’s product portfolio is extended to include aluminum closures. The acquisition will allow BERICAP to continue on its growth trajectory and, with Mala on board, it has the opportunity to open up new market segments and to develop innovative closure technologies combining plastic and aluminum.
