Polyconcept, whose U.S. subsidiary, Polyconcept North America, oversees suppliers Leed’s (PPAI 112361), Bullet (PPAI 113079), JournalBooks (PPAI 110769) and Trimark (PPAI 198982), has announced that subsidiary Areka SAS, a France-based candy manufacturer, has been acquired by Boudeville and Fontaine.

Boudeville and Fontaine is a French manufacturer of metal packaging that has specialized in printing and varnishing on metal since 1890. Polyconcept’s PF Concept will continue to sell Areka products in most European countries.

“The divestment of Areka is a step for Polyconcept towards rationalizing our business portfolio, and we are very happy to have found a good home for the people and this activity,” says Ralf Oster, CEO of PF Concept. “I would like to thank the  Areka team for their contribution to Polyconcept for so many years, and we wish both Areka and Boudeville and Fontaine great success in the future.”
