Nelipak said today that it has closed on its buy of thermoforming company Computer Designs (Whitehall, Pa.), which Nelipak will operate under the Nelipak Healthcare Packaging name.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Computer Designs makes thermoformed rigid packaging including trays, clamshells, and blisters, with manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona and Puerto Rico. Its primary customers are in the medical device and pharmaceutical industry in the U.S. and Latin America.

Under the Nelipak Healthcare Packaging name, the company will continue with its employees and suppliers as it further develops its thermoformed packaging products and services. Nelipak officials see growth opportunities in North America, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean.

Nelipak – a 60-year-old brand with a global presence in the healthcare thermoformed packaging industry – will boost the former Computer Designs with its design teams and modern cleanroom manufacturing at its global locations.

“We are excited about our acquisition of Computer Designs. Scott McKeever, the founder of Computer Designs, has spent 30 years building a great company with outstanding people and tremendous capabilities and we proudly welcome the Computer Designs team to Nelipak,” Nelipak CEO Mike Kelly said in a news release.

“We will leverage the unique capabilities of both organizations to delight our customers with innovative designs, world-class quality, and excellent service,” Kelly said.
