GPA Global acquires ASG Spark manufacturing site in Poland
We’re excited to announce that our parent company, GPA Global, has acquired a packaging manufacturing site in Poland.
Based just outside Warsaw, the facility, which was previously owned by ASG Spark, has an area of 8,000 square metres and comes kitted out with all the latest generation equipment, as well as a skilled and experienced workforce.
ASG Spark is a European company that specialises in high-quality folding cartons and rigid boxes, as well as other paper and board products – all of which GPA will continue to manufacture through this facility. The site is set up to offer turnkey packaging solutions, which means the team will be handling everything from design and development through to logistics.
GPA will also take on three technical sales offices in the UK, France and the Netherlands allowing us to provide superior service and support to our customers. The focus will be on innovation and helping our clients achieve their sustainability goals and commitments.
GPA Global CEO Adam Melton has praised the talent and experience of the ASG team and hinted about the future of GPA in Europe: “As global supply chains are migrating closer to where products are consumed, having manufacturing in Poland is of strategic importance for GPA Global and we intend to continue to expand our presence in the region.”
GPA President Tom Wang also spoke about the acquisition: “As a group we have a long history of servicing Home Entertainment customers in the North American market. We are honoured and proud to have been the production partner for some of the most significant releases in the industry and we are excited to welcome ASG to be part of our group. With our combined strength and capabilities, we look forward to expanding our global offering to our combined customer base.”
Meanwhile, Jamie Toms, Managing Director of ASG Print, had the following to say:
"After 20 years working with ASG Print, I am delighted to announce that the ASG Print team will be joining GPA Global. GPA will provide longevity and financial stability to ASG through continued investment, while we will continue to deliver “best in class” integrated supply chain solutions for European print packaging customers. This, in combination with GPA Global China’s sourcing solutions, is a truly unique offering to both existing and new customers."
