Packaging

The distribution of packaging solutions and materials is Inapa’s second most important business. With operations in Germany, France and Portugal, this area has multiple synergies with the paper distribution as well as cross selling potential, both for customers in the graphic or office segments.

The European packaging distribution market has a significant size, coexisting generic and specialized distributors, focusing on only one type of packaging material or a limited number.

Economic globalization specialization and geographic concentration of production, change in consumer behavior and, in particular, the increase of online sales caused a very significant raise in the needs for safe, fast and versatile packaging of all types of products, which anticipates a sustained growth in the consumption over the medium to long term.

Packaging is, in many cases, the first point of contact between customers and suppliers or products and the investment in this area will increase, being an additional factor for boosting the packaging demand.

contribution of complementary business to the Group operational results

Inapa, alongside the distribution of packaging materials, also develops technologies and unique packaging concepts, offering customers not only the unique design of their packaging, but also the filling and logistics services that may be associated.

The Group anticipates an increase of the weight of the distribution of packaging materials and solutions in its consolidated sales, as a result not only of the expansion of this business segment to other geographies in which Inapa operates, but also organic growth of the existing units.

In 2014 the Group concluded the unification process of the packaging companies in Germany and France that began to operate under the same brand – Inapa Packaging.
