TricorBraun Acquires Trilogy Glass and Packaging Inc.


Date: 01/03/12

press release - St. Louis, Mo, 1/03/12... TricorBraun (www.tricorbraun.com), a leading supplier of bottles, jars and other rigid packaging components, announced today that it has acquired Trilogy Glass and Packaging, Inc. of Santa Rosa, CA. Trilogy will become part of TricorBraun WinePak, making it a $120 million division of TricorBraun that specifically services the wine industry.

“Bringing Trilogy Glass and Packaging into the fold was an easy decision. Both companies operate from a ‘customer first’ perspective. We have very similar cultures,” said Keith Strope, CEO of TricorBraun. “This is a move that benefits the customers from both organizations.”

“We’re very excited about being part of TricorBraun,” said Rick Miron, co-owner of Trilogy Glass and Packaging.

“Having expanded capabilities—particularly the repacking operation in Northern California and an expanded financial base—are a real plus,” said Greg Windisch, co-owner of Trilogy Glass and Packaging.

This acquisition has effectively doubled TricorBraun WinePak’s sales force and clearly establishes it as North America’s largest supplier of wine packaging. The firm has offices in Northern and Southern California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. A recently opened location in Fairfield, CA includes a $2 million repacking system designed to automatically transfer wine bottles from eight-foot high stacks of pallets to individual wineries’ custom, 12-bottle cartons. This facility also provides over 65 percent more warehousing space than in its previous Northern California location.

TricorBraun (www.tricorbraun.com) is one of the world’s leading suppliers of rigid packaging and components. The company has sales approaching $1 billion and more than 40 locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Asia. Its primary focus is on packaging for personal care; cosmetics; healthcare; food and beverages; as well as industrial and household chemicals.
