This move serves to expand LLFlex's footprint in packaging niches and offer broad products in several sectors with the expertise of both companies. 

Hampden Papers is located in Holyoke, Massachusetts and LLFlex in Louisville, Kentucky. Although, with the acquisition, LLFLex has begun production at its new 73,500 square foot manufacturing facility in High Point, North Carolina which will significantly expand LLFlex’s output capacity as well as build upon the consumer packaging capacity and capabilities at LLFlex's Kentucky facility. 

"Hampden Paper's expertise and focus on quality are a perfect complement to LLFlex’s core strengths and proud heritage of supplying high quality, value-added packaging materials for consumer products," said Kelley Stearman, LLFlex packaging segment director. "We are excited about our expanded portfolio of product offerings and the packaging solutions that our new company will bring to customer."

“Working closely with the owners and executives of Hampden Papers has allowed us to create this unique combination of assets, capabilities, expertise and unparalleled commitment to our customers,” said Victor Dixon, CEO of LLFlex. “We are very proud and excited to carry forward the Hampden legacy and history by combining these foundations with the growing portfolio of LLFlex packaging material solutions. The collective customers and broader market will notice immediate benefits by being able to source a wider range of products from one combined company that can better support brand owners, package designers, printers, converters and other related users of laminated and coated materials. Bringing the high-quality Hampden products together with the large scale and robust global supply chain of LLFlex will result in a myriad of benefits for our valued customers.”
