In the News


Berlin Packaging has a new financial partner. After seven years working with Investcorp, Berlin recently signed an agreement to partner with Oak Hill Capital Partners. You can read the press release here.
For decades, Berlin has won in the marketplace with our superior Hybrid Packaging Supplier approach wrapped in our time-tested operational excellence. This is still our plan going forward, and our new partner is eager to make investments that will add to our depth and breadth of capabilities.
In the meantime, the relationship between our customers and Berlin is business as usual. This means:
  • No changes to the products you buy,
  • No changes to the prices you pay,
  • No changes to the services we offer, and
  • No changes to the team you work with.
We look forward to continuing to grow together.
