Returnable packaging company, PPS, acquires of GW containers

01 May 2017

PPS, a supplier of returnable packaging services, has recently announced that GW Containers, a specialist in plastic fish boxes and insulated containers, has joined the group. 

GW Containers is the sole UK distributor for the Sæplast insulated containers and the RPC Promens fish box range. In partnership with Sæplast and RPC Promens the company is said to be the UK's leading supplier to the fishing industry and animal by-products industry in addition to supplying preferred products in meat, vegetables, battery recycling, waste and food processing. 

The acquisition of the company by PPS will allow it to expand and enhance its current services to ensure customers have access to an even larger range of packaging solutions. Currently PPS offers the delivery, collection, asset tracking, washing, rental and repair of returnable equipment. It also sells a wide range of returnable packaging via Alison Handling, which joined the group 18 months ago.  
Commenting on the announcement, David Peggie, CEO of PPS, said: “We’ve admired the services and reputation of GW Containers for many years and are proud to be able to take on the exceptional services and impressive customer base. We are also delighted that both Graham and Gregg Witherington will remain with the company in their current roles to continue the further development of the business under the PPS banner.”
