Verallia continues Allied Glass’s integration with name change
In the framework of the acquisition of Allied Glass, Yorkshire-based glass manufacturer, in November 2022, Verallia has decided to take a further step in the integration by renaming the company as Verallia, as of the 1st of January 2023
“I am delighted to take this new step, which will allow our Group to have a solid footprint on the UK market. With more than 150 years of glass-making expertise each, both Groups share indeed the same strong values – especially care for customers and teamwork – that guide and inspire our behavior”, said Patrice Lucas, CEO of Verallia Group.
Alan Henderson, CEO of Verallia UK commented: “We are thrilled to be able to take this next step in our integration with Verallia. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to further improve our market offering and work in synergy with Verallia to go from strength to strength.”
This acquisition allows Verallia to benefit from Allied Glass’s expertise in premium glass bottles, specifically in the Scotch Whisky and Gin sectors, and their established position on the UK market.
Moreover, this operation allows existing customers of Allied Glass, transcending across blue chip, traditional and emerging brands, to reap the benefits of the support of an international Group.
At Verallia, our purpose is to re-imagine glass for a sustainable future. We want to redefine how glass is produced, reused and recycled, to make it the world’s most sustainable packaging material. We work in common cause with our customers, suppliers and other partners across the value chain to develop new healthy and sustainable solutions for all.
