CCL Industries, a Toronto-based maker of specialty packaging for the consumer products and health-care industries, says it has signed a licensing deal with Pacman Group of Dubai to expand the CCL’s label sales to the Middle East and Africa.
The agreement grants Pacman Group exclusive rights to manufacture CCL labels in the Middle East and Africa outside of South Africa under a licensing arrangement.
The two companies also announced plans to create a jointly owned company to manufacture and sell labels in India with a new plant slated to begin production next year.
CCL Industries employs 5,400 people and operates 56 plants in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia. It produces labels, aluminum cans, bottles and plastic tubes for cosmetics, pharmaceutical and consumer products companies.
