Robbie Manufacturing specializes in on-site packaging needs for grocery stores, shrink wrap packaging of multipack consumer goods, and packaging solutions for food processors. With approximately 175 employees, Robbie Manufacturing reported revenues of US$50 million during the past business year.
“This acquisition is great news for the ongoing development of our flexible packaging division, an important area of growth for the Corporation,” said TC Transcontinental president and CEO François Olivier. “The acquisition of Robbie Manufacturing is strategic on two fronts. It allows us to enter into two new packaging niches while also creating opportunities for synergies with our existing facilities nearby.

We’re pleased to welcome our new employees who will contribute to TC Transcontinental’s growth and success.”
