NEENAH Menasha Corporation announced that it has acquired Portable Packaging Systems, Inc., of Mississauga, Ontario. The family owned business will operate as part of Menasha Packaging Canada L.P., a subsidiary of Menasha Corporation. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Portable Packaging designs promotional packaging and displays for retailers and consumer packaged goods companies and provides material sourcing, assembly, repacking, fulfillment and distribution services.

Both companies also focus on the food, household and personal care markets.

"Acquiring an additional company in Canada that is well-aligned with our values and business model provides Menasha Packaging with additional capabilities and resources to meet the growing needs of CPG customers in North America," said Jim Kotek, president and CEO of Menasha Corporation, in a statement.

Founded in 1991, Portable Packaging employs more than 100 full-time employees and an average of 300 temporary workers per day at its Mississauga facility and at three customer-dedicated distribution centers in the greater Toronto area and one in Montreal. In January, Menasha Packaging acquired PearceWellwood of Brampton, Ontario.
