ST. LOUIS, October 7, 2022 – Global packaging leader TricorBraun announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire German glass packaging distributor Gläser & Flaschen GmbH. The acquisition extends TricorBraun’s European presence and strengthens its position as a leading packaging provider in Europe.

Serving customers for nearly 20 years, Gläser & Flaschen is a leading provider of high-quality glass packaging for the growing preserved food market. The company operates from a state-of-the-art distribution and operations center in Wustermark (Brandenburg, Germany).

“We have such an intense passion for our business, our talented team, our customers and suppliers, and our strong community in the preserved food world—we knew we needed an exceptional partner as we begin our next phase of growth,” said Stefanie Burmeister, managing director, Gläser & Flaschen. “TricorBraun’s world-class reputation, paired with its focus on team members, service for customers, and emphasis on growth makes it our ideal home.”

All Gläser & Flaschen team members will remain with TricorBraun and continue to work out of the company’s existing location. Effective upon closing of the transaction, Gläser & Flaschen will operate as Gläser & Flaschen, a TricorBraun company.
