PKBR Staff Writer Published 12 June 2018

Private equity firms L Catterton and Ambienta have agreed to acquire Italy-based beauty packaging firm Pibiplast for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Correggio, Pibiplast is engaged in designing and manufacturing of beauty and personal care plastic packaging solutions.

The Bosi family, founder and current owner of the firm, will hold a minority interest, as per terms of the deal.

L Catterton Europe managing partner Andrea Ottaviano said: “We look forward to working with Ambienta to support the Company's growth through strong investments in R&D and Capex.”

Pibiplast was established in 1954 as a manufacturer of plastic packaging for the pharmaceutical industry.
