Scholle Packaging has bought Zork for an undisclosed amount

Scholle Packaging has lined up the acquisition of resealable bottle closure producer Zork.

The purchase, announced by the two Australia-based companies late last week, sees Zork's artificial corks for wine, sparkling wine and spirits, enter Scholle's bag-in-box-dominated portfolio. The alternative closures include “the world’s first and only commercially-proven resealable closure for sparkling wines,” According to Scholle.

Financial details behind the transaction were not disclosed.

“The Zork acquisition falls in line with Scholle’s current performance polymer technologies and now allows further expansion of their precision closure offering for both rigid and flexible container applications in the wine and spirits market,” the company said.

The launch of Zork's closures as part of Scholle's portfolio is taking place this week at the London International Wine Fair.
