As the largest European manufacturer of returnable plastic packaging, Schoeller Allibert makes hand-held and large bulk containers servicing the retail, logistics, food and beverage, industrial and automotive industries.
Brookfield invested in Schoeller Allibert in 2018 in partnership with the founding Schoeller family. Its strong market share, manufacturing scale, extensive product portfolio and diverse customer relationships made it an attractive investment opportunity.
Since acquisition, Brookfield has leveraged its packaging expertise and global network to grow the business into new markets, invest in product development and transform the company from manufacturing to pooling services. Working with the management team and Brookfield’s partners has improved the company’s sustainability and profitability by reducing waste and raw materials. Innovation to reduce the weight of crates to minimize transport costs and environmental impact continues. Schoeller Allibert is now the largest provider of 100% reusable and recyclable plastic packaging in Europe.
