Sparflex/Rivercap Announces Exclusive Distribution through Cork Supply USA in North America


Date: 01/05/11

Sparflex/Rivercap announced today that they are joining forces with Cork Supply USA for the exclusive distribution of their capsules in the North American wine and spirits market.

“This partnership is the result of a common vision of the world capsule market for cork-finished wines and spirits,” said Aaron Niderost, CEO of Sparflex of California/Rivercap USA. “Our goal is to provide customers with high-end products, a wide range of packaging solutions, state of-the-art technology and true expertise. With Cork Supply USA’s reputation for providing outstanding customer service, together we can provide unmatched products and services.”

Sparflex, one of the leading companies for its core business of foils and wirehoods for the sparkling wine industry, and Rivercap, a world leader in the production of capsules including tin, polylam, PVC and screwcaps, formed a partnership in April of last year, that related exclusively to their capsule operations for still wines and spirits. This agreement has led to important investments in their Ukiah manufacturing center.

“This new agreement between Sparflex/Rivercap and Cork Supply USA is a great opportunity for our two companies to create the critical mass necessary to address the demands of the current wine and spirit markets, in terms of production capacity and innovation, while maintaining a high standard of customer service and knowledge,” said James Herwatt, CEO of Cork Supply USA.

For 30 years Cork Supply has built its reputation as a trusted and relied-upon partner to the wine industry, providing best-in-class products, exceptional capability and a passion for quality and customer satisfaction. With staff and operations around the globe, Cork Supply delivers standard-setting quality products, service and expertise locally to wineries throughout the world's premier wine growing regions.
