Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box is developing its global presence by acquiring the Argentinian company Baguin, specializing in the Bag-in-Box solutions covering Latin America. European leader, Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box now has six modern facilities in France, Italy, Spain, Russia, Canada and now Argentina to serve its customers worldwide.
Baguin was founded in 1992 in Buenos Aires and has currently 120 employees. The factory covers 4,000 m2 and is equipped with several modern production lines for the manufacture of bags, as well as injection machines, film extrusion machines and recycling lines.
Today this company offers a diverse portfolio of more than 220 products: bags (ranging from 750 ml up to 1000 litres capacity), taps, films and filling systems. Baguin is certified ISO 9001 and all the products are manufactured according to HACCP standards thus guaranteeing hygiene and quality, the company says.
In the 20 years of existence, Baguin has developed its activity in nine Latin American countries, with its main markets in Argentina, Peru, Chile and Brazil, and is focused on continued expansion.
The acquisition of this company will enable Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box to enlarge its current product range and enhance its position in the dynamic markets of Latin America.
