Gateway Packaging Company has acquired the operating assets of Werthan Packaging, Inc. The acquisition augments Gateway’s market position as the leading provider of flexible packaging to the pet care market and introduces Werthan’s former customers to Gateway’s broad product portfolio and diverse capabilities. Gateway will continue to operate Werthan’s former White House, TN facility.
Omar Abuaita, Gateway CEO, commented, “Werthan built a reputation as a high-quality manufacturer, and we are thrilled to add its capabilities and talented employees to Gateway. This investment substantially expands our capacity to continue our rapid growth in pet care.” This addition gives Gateway three full service plants that provide very high quality package printing and manufacturing for the pet care and other hi-end packaging needs industries.
