Plasticon Europe (Netherlands) is to acquire AC Plastiques Canada to strengthen its position in its core business and explore markets where it currently has limited presence.
Being part of the Plasticon Europe group, AC Plastiques will be able to offer a much wider product and service package to the market and profit from the synergy with the existing Plasticon Europe companies. AC Plastiques will remain an independent entity within the group operating under its current name, serving the North American market besides the power market that Plasticon North America will continue to service.
