Australian family-owned packaging supplier acquired by global company


Global packaging company, TricorBraun, has announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Cormack Packaging, an Australian family-owned packaging supplier. This will establish the company’s footprint in the region. 

The transaction is expected to close later this month. 

Serving customers with rigid packaging needs for more than 80 years and spanning three generations, Cormack Packaging primarily serves the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, industrial and household cleaning industries. 

“We are incredibly excited to mark our first entry into Australia with the acquisition of Cormack,” TricorBraun president and CEO Court Carruthers said. 

“Mathew Cormack and his team have established the company as a respected leader in the market over many decades. We are pleased to welcome Cormack to the TricorBraun family, and we look forward to helping the team continue its strong growth while serving customers with innovative and quality packaging solutions.” 

All the Australian company’s team members, including managing director Mathew Cormack and the company’s executive team, will remain with TricorBraun. The team will continue to work out of the company’s existing locations across Australia and New Zealand. Effective with the closing of the transaction, Cormack Packaging will operate as “Cormack Packaging, a TricorBraun company.” 

“Joining the world-class TricorBraun team is the next great growth chapter in Cormack Packaging’s 82-year history,” Cormack said. 

“I am truly excited for the opportunities this brings to Cormack Packaging to better serve this region’s customers. Sharing like values, as well as a common passion and commitment to be the best partner for our valued customers, make TricorBraun the ideal home for Cormack Packaging to thrive.” 

Since it was founded, TricorBraun has partnered with management teams to successfully acquire and accelerate growth for more than 25 packaging companies. Cormack Packaging marks TricorBraun’s third acquisition this year.
