Leading Irish companies Combind and NPP Join Forces

Dublin-based packaging and machinery company Combind has announced its merger with NPP, resulting in an integrated organisation offering innovative packaging, machinery and technical services to the Irish and UK market. The two companies will form one single entity and trade as NPP from April 3rd.

Combind has operated alongside its sister company NPP since joining the group in 2010. Both companies have been operating from a purpose-built facility at Coldwinters, Dublin for over 3 years, and the time is now right to integrate the two businesses.

From its inception in 1984, NPP’s primary product offering has been flexible packaging solutions, while Combind provides a broad product range encompassing strapping, adhesive tapes and in-house manufactured corrugated boxes. In recent years, both companies’ expertise and range has expanded to include packaging systems, parts and engineering capabilities. The merger aligns the company’s’ talent and resources into one single entity so they are better placed to serve customers, with the complete package of materials, machinery and technical services.

Ken Martin, Director of Combind said “The unification of our two organisation’s into one brand was the next logical step in the evolution of Combind.  Our brilliant staff, and customers alike will benefit from this very positive development.  We’re excited about what the future holds as we continue to enhance our value proposition to Irish industry”.

David Duffy, MD of NPP commented  “We are delighted welcome our colleagues in Combind to NPP and bring all of our teams together. NPP and Combind are both leaders in the packaging industry, each with nearly 40 years’ history providing high-quality products and services. This merger will create a stronger, more capable and competitive company that is better positioned to serve our customers and stakeholders. We look forward to working together to build an increasingly more capable and successful company.”

NPP provides packaging and machinery solutions to businesses across a wide range of industries including Food, Agriculture, Construction, Pharmaceutical and Medical Device. To find out more about NPP, please visit www.npp.ie or call +353 1 880 9299
