Geerings Horticultural Products has been one of the UK’s main suppliers of floristry, plant and horticultural packaging since 1903 and was purchased by LC Packaging to expand its range and the market sectors it serves.
LC Packaging UK managing director Martin Schrooder said: "This was an ideal combination, as both companies are family businesses and have a deep history in providing specialist packaging products. Bringing Geerings into the LC family allows us to improve our offer."
Lynda Makant has been at Geerings for more than 10 years and is now joining LC Packaging. Makant said: "Geerings Horticultural has been part of a wider industrial group for many years, so I look forward to bringing my customers to a new home and being able to offer them a greater product range and support from a leading packaging specialist."
