Vinventions acquires Italian screwcap company Alplast

Closures company Vinventions has announced that from 1 May, the 30 x 60 wine screwcap business of Italy’s Alplast S.r.l. – a leading producer of aluminium closures for wine and food – will join its portfolio of brands.

With this strategic partnership, Vinventions has added more than 200 million 30 x 60 wine screwcaps to its growing closures portfolio, effectively positioning it as the third largest supplier of wine screwcaps worldwide.

Alplast S.r.l. will continue to produce the 30 x 60 wine screwcaps exclusively on behalf of Vinventions at its plant in Tigliole, Italy, while Vinventions will take over the sales, marketing and order fulfillment for 30 x 60 wine screwcap.

“We are very proud to welcome the Goria Family and their well-known Alplast wine screwcaps to our Vinventions Group”, said Dr Heino Freudenberg, president and CEO at Vinventions.

“As we further accelerate our growth in wine screwcaps and inner-seal wine closures, this is the perfect moment for us to expand our wine screwcap collection and to add ‘Alplast’ to our well-established House of Brands. This makes our Complete Wine Closure Solutions even more attractive for our customers around the world!”
