Packaging company Mondi Group has completed its acquisition of the National Company for Paper Products and Import & Export S.A.E. (NPP) in Egypt, it announced.
Mondi Group has confirmed that all conditions of the €24 million (EGP510 million) sale, on a debt and cash-free basis, have been fulfilled. The announcement of the acquisition was originally made on 30 April 2018.
NPP operates an industrial bags manufacturing plant in Giza near Cairo, serving customers in the region. The company will be incorporated into Mondi’s fibre packaging business unit, which produces industrial bags and has four plants in the Middle East.

The packaging group reported a 15% operating increase to €295 million in the first quarter of the financial year in May.
