Waveform will merge the new thick-gauge thermoforming activities with its existing operations in South River, Ontario.
South River, Ont.-based thermoformer Waveform Plastics Technologies Ltd. has acquired the thick-gauge division of Shepherd Thermoforming & Packaging.
The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
“Waveform and the Shepherd facility have enjoyed a great ‘friendly competitor’ relationship over the past many years, and we look forward to providing quality products and seamless support to the Shepherd facility’s thick-gauge customers,” Waveform officials said in a June 27 news release.
Headquartered in Brampton, Ont., Shepherd designs custom packaging including engineering, mold production, and final product manufacturing for both thin-gauge and heavy-gauge applications. Shepherd was acquired by Vancouver-based Good Natured Products in 2020.
