Berry Plastics Group, Inc. Announces Transactions In Support Of Strategic Initiatives

Effective on the transaction date, all employees located in Berry Plastics’ Bremen, Georgia, facility and the commercial employees supporting this business became employees of WNA.

Berry Plastics also announced the related closure of its Coon Rapids, Minnesota, facility. As part of the sale of Berry Plastics’ Kits and Catering businesses, WNA purchased the equipment and inventory at Coon Rapids. Over the next several months WNA will transition these assets to other WNA locations. During this period, Berry Plastics will continue to operate the facility. It is anticipated that the full closure of the Coon Rapids facility will occur no later than December 31, 2013.

“At Berry Plastics, we continually evaluate our product and business portfolio to ensure that we are dedicating resources to those product lines that are the best strategic fit for our Company. During this process, it was determined that our Kits and Catering businesses would be best affiliated with a company, such as WNA, that is a leader within this market,” said Rich.
