What’s new with Visual Pak in 2012?
The Visual Pak Companies made two strategic acquisitions to expand its service offerings throughout the United States.

The first acquisition involved the purchase of Cosmetic Labs of America (CLA) from Unilever. Located in Chatsworth, California, CLA is widely regarded as a premier West Coast contract packaging company producing unique and inventive formulas and packages within the personal care and cosmetic industries. CLA has long been known as an innovative product-development company in the consumer- and salon-product markets. CLA’s competitive edge has been shaped over the last 40 years through the development of many globally recognized brands that have been successfully distributed in mass retail, professional, multi-tier marketing, direct response and medical channels. CLA customers include Fortune 500 companies, well-known health, beauty, cosmetic and fragrance brands and a host of other specialized health and beauty aid companies.

The second acquisition is for the plant facility and equipment assets of Hexagon Packaging Corporation, which specializes in consumer and industrial cleaning products, chemical processing and filling services. Established in 1985 and located in Waukegan Illinois, Hexagon has been specializing in liquid blending and filling of household and industrial cleaners, fabric washes, polishes, and various other products for the automotive and household industries. In addition to liquid blending and filling, this operation also offers packaging services such as shrink wrapping, blister packaging, assembly, labeling and years of significant distribution experience.
