De Soto company acquires Ohio-based addition
Huhtamaki, a food packaging company with its North American headquarters in De Soto, is expanding their company through the acquisition of Ample Industries, Inc.
Huhtamaki announced in a press release earlier this month that the Ohio-based Ample Industries, which employs approximately 230 people, will "further expand Huhtamaki’s product portfolio of tableware, cups, containers, carriers, and serviceware."
Along with the acquisition of Ample Industries, Huhtamaki announced in the release plans to expand in the paper drink cup and pressed paperboard plate industries.
This is Huhtamaki's second major acquisition this year. They bought Texas-based Paris Packaging in September.
