Napa and Ukiah, California – On February 1st, two leading packaging suppliers, Amcor Flexibles Capsules and Maverick Enterprises, Inc. will further strengthen their position in North America through the creation of a manufacturing and sales partnership. The two companies will combine their extensive knowledge and experience in the manufacturing of polylaminate, PVC & sparkling foils for the North American wine and spirits market.

Both companies have been producing locally in close proximity to the wine industry for more than twenty years and are renowned for quality and speed of service. The partnership will see a consolidation of manufacturing assets for the production of poly-laminate and PVC capsules for the wine, sparkling and spirits markets at Maverick’s facility in Ukiah, California. Amcor Flexibles Capsules will continue to sell capsules under the Amcor Brand, produced in partnership with Maverick Enterprises.
