Eureka Equity Partners (“Eureka”) today announced the sale of Jansy Packaging (“Jansy”), a leading provider of outsourced, value-added specialty packaging solutions for branded consumer products companies across a number of consumer categories with a focus on health & beauty, to Berlin Packaging L.L.C., a portfolio company of Oak Hill Capital Partners and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.
Based in Englewood Cliffs, NJ with locations in Huntington Beach, CA, Chicago, IL, and Dongguan, China, Jansy brings a skilled team of designers, product developers, packaging specialists and global manufacturing experts to provide innovative and collaborative packaging solutions to owners of some of the world’s most recognized consumer brands. Jansy’s material-agnostic approach allows Jansy to focus on delivering innovative solutions that are inspirationally conceived, painstakingly engineered and intelligently developed.
“It was a true pleasure to partner with CEO Brad Zaikov to carve Jansy out from its holding company and build the team and infrastructure that facilitated the differentiation of Jansy as an innovative packaging solutions provider to its valued brand-owner customers, and to provide a strong return for our investors and management partners,” stated Chris Miller, a Partner at Eureka and former Director of Jansy. “Working with Brad, we closed four add-on acquisitions into Jansy during our ownership, and Brad and his team executed on specific initiatives that allowed Jansy to continue its growth through the global pandemic and an historically challenging global supply chain. We are excited to see Brad and the Jansy team join forces with the world-leading hybrid packaging solutions provider, and we are confident Brad and his team will bring new innovations and continued growth to the Berlin platform.”
“I was very selective about who Jansy’s first private equity partner was going to be when I decided to team up with Eureka,” said Brad Zaikov. “We had several options at the time and from the moment of our first meeting I knew Eureka was the right fit. Looking back over the past seven years and reflecting on what we’ve built, there is no question Jansy and the senior management team made the right decision. I can’t thank the Eureka team enough for their hard work and dedication to Jansy and for bringing together the combination of Berlin Packaging and Jansy.”
BlackArch Partners LLC served as financial advisor and Blank Rome LLP acted as legal advisor to Eureka and Jansy.
