Germany’s Schumacher Packaging has signed a deal to take over UK cardboard box producer Jaffabox.


"With the takeover of Jaffabox, Schumacher Packaging is further ex-panding its presence in the European market. Particularly internation-ally active customers of the packaging expert with headquarters in Ebersdorf, Germany, will reap the benefits in terms of logistics. A fair few of them have sites in the UK themselves," the German group said in a statement.


The value of the latest acquisition was not disclosed.


Jaffabox says it is based in Birmingham, UK, and it has been making cardboard boxes since 1978.
