Transparent packaging provider Stäger has acquired Inovac, a thermoforming company in Czech Republic, for an undisclosed amount.
With the addition of Inovac, Stäger expands its service and product range, as well as bolstering its presence in the Eastern and Western European market.
Based in Rokycany, Inovac develops and manufactures vacuum-formed packaging solutions from plastics intended for the automotive, electro-technical and consumer industries.
It also produces component holders and transport trays for well-known national and international automotive suppliers.
Stäger Inovac Packaging will relocate its office to a modern production facility in Pilsen.
This allows an expansion of the existing business activities as well as offering other packaging solutions of the Stäger Group mainly for Eastern Europe with increased customer proximity, Stäger said.
Additionally, Stäger launched Hybrid Tube, which is made out of different packaging materials like cardboard, plastic and metals.

According to the company, individual designs can be integrated in bottoms and lids of the Hybrid Tube by pasting in carton discs or colored components. Hybrid Tube can be constructed with one or multiple carton or transparent sections.
