The shareholders sold Aarts Packaging to TriMas

MP Corporate Finance acted as the exclusive M&A advisor to the shareholders of Aarts Packaging in the sale to TriMas

The shareholders of Aarts Packaging, a leading luxury packaging player, sold 100% of the shares to TriMas.
Founded in 1943 Aarts Packaging is an innovative producer of injection-moulded plastic packaging for global beauty and luxury end-markets as well as food packaging. With its highly automated facility in the Netherlands the Company produces ~270m products annually.
TriMas Corporation, a US-based NASDAQ-listed company operating globally in consumer products, aerospace and industrial markets, approaching ~USD 1bn sales with TriMas Packaging being the largest group with approx. 60% of sales. TriMas Packaging specializes in injection-moulding and advanced assembling for beauty & personal care, food & beverage, home care, pharmaceutical, etc.
In 2019, company owner Rob Geurtz partnered up with Dutch private equity firm Berk Partners, in order to take the company to the next level, which now led to the successful exit. The transaction will unlock new growth opportunities for Aarts, while TriMas will add a variety of cosmetic closures and beauty packaging design solutions, strengthen its European footprint and bring in-house automation experience, moulding capabilities and deep relationships with prestigious clients to the global group.
