Brunnhoefer will be a bolt-on acquisition for Germany-based CCL Design.
Toronto-based packaging and label supplier CCL Industries Inc. has acquired German label maker Fritz Brunnhoefer GmbH for a net cash purchase price of Cdn$7.8 million.
Headquartered in Nurnberg, Brunnhoefer produces labels for durable goods, and reported 2014 sales of Cdn$8.5 million.
