Our Growth


The development of Winpak from its inception as a single manufacturing facility in 1977 until the present day has been accomplished through both organic growth and acquisitions.


Winpak Division in Winnipeg, Manitoba establishes a respectable position in the North American modified atmosphere packaging market.


Winpak acquired 80 percent of Flex-On, Inc., now operating as Winpak Films Inc., and in 1989 acquired the remaining 20 percent. Winpak Films utilizes state-of-the-art multilayer extrusion lines to maintain a strong position in niche film markets.


Winpak acquired the packaging business of PNG Products Inc., one of North America's premier converters of flexible packaging materials. The facility in Toronto, Ontario operated from this location as Winpak Technologies.


Winpak acquired three rigid plastic packaging manufacturing facilities from Consumer's Packaging and formed Winpak Portion Packaging. These facilities manufacture thermoformed rigid plastic cups, trays and rollstock sheets.


Winpak acquired the W.A. Lane companies, a California-based manufacturer of packaging machines and formed Winpak Lane. Winpak Lane is the recognized leader in the design of packaging machinery used for liquid and semi-liquid products.


Winpak Heat Seal Packaging was created from the acquisition of Heat Seal Packaging Inc. of Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec. The company is an integrated manufacturer of heat-sealable membranes and die-cut lids.


Winpak established a new operating unit, American Biaxis Inc., with a 51 percent owned joint venture with Nichimen, now Sojitz Corporation,of Japan to manufacture and distribute biaxially-oriented polyamide (BOPA) film in the Americas.


Winpak acquired the assets of Webkote, a market leader in die-cut foil lidding, and now operates in Illinois as Winpak Heat Seal Corporation. The combined lidding production of the two Winpak Heat Seal manufacturing facilities make Winpak the largest foil lid supplier in North America.


Winpak sold the assets of the printed, paper bag business operated at Winpak Technologies in Toronto, Ontario. The plant was closed at the end of the year. The non-paper products manufactured at the plant were consolidated into other Winpak facilities.


Winpak commissioned a major expansion to its Winpak Films Inc. manufacturing facility to continue producing various technology-based specialty films and packaging materials for fresh meat and cheese.


As part of a major expansion, Winpak Portion Packaging opened a new manufacturing facility in Sauk Village, Illinois. The new facility added thermoforming capacity to produce rigid containers and additional warehouse space to support sales growth.


Winpak Heat Seal opened a new facility in Queretaro, Mexico. The primary purpose of this facility is to provide local supply of die cut lids to the Mexican market as well as other Latin American countries.


Our Winnipeg, Manitoba location completed the largest Coextrusion line in our Company’s history.  This line is set to increase Winpak’s capacity and improve the quality of the multi-barrier films we supply to our customers. 


Back-to-back expansions of our specialty film operations in Senoia, Georgia and our rigid container facility in Sauk Village, Illinois to further increase production capacity.


Winpak acquired the assets of Control Group, a leading provider of specialized printed packaging solutions to the pharmaceutical, healthcare, nutraceutical, cosmetic and personal care markets.  Now operating as Winpak Control Group, this latest addition will continue to strengthen Winpak's value proposition in these markets.
