SIRANE - owner of the Enaris brand - has acquired flexible packaging manufacturer B&G Products in a move which immediately expands Enaris's potential product range and allows for expansion at B&G.

B&G Products – a UK-based manufacturer of innovative bags and pouches – has become part of the Sirane Group, with the sale for an undisclosed sum going through yesterday.

The partnership will allow Sirane to access new markets, and to expand the B&G business through our existing client base both in the UK and overseas – and has come with an additional immediate investment in new machines alongside the purchase.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “B&G Products is a great company with huge potential, and their product range complements Sirane’s existing business perfectly. In fact, we’ve worked with them over the last few years on a number of projects, and got to know the team, their capabilities, and the quality of what they manufacture.

“B&G Products becoming part of the Sirane Group will allow it access to our international network and this is the first step on what should be a very exciting path.”

Nick Baxter, B&G Products MD, said: “We’ve worked with Sirane for a number of years now, and so I’m happy the company is in safe hands. This is a partnership that makes sense for all concerned, as both Sirane and B&G Products can benefit from each other.

“There’s a great opportunity now to further cement both companies’ place in the market as the go-to company for all types of innovative packaging solutions. I think everyone concerned is excited about what the future holds for Sirane and B&G Products.”

B&G Products, based in rural Staffordshire, is a manufacturer of high-quality and innovative bags and pouches with more than 30 years’ experience in the sector. Around 30 people work at the site in Norbury, and all staff will remain in place as part of the sale.

Peter Ralten, Commercial Director at B&G Products, said: “It’s been great working alongside the team at Sirane for several years now and I’m very pleased to become part of Sirane as shareholder, and for B&G Products to officially become part of the Sirane Group.

“It’s an exciting future for all involved, both at Sirane and at B&G Products.”

Recent innovations from B&G include the Earthpouch – a plastic-free stand-up food packaging pouch – and anti-bacterial insulated bags. Other products on offer retort & microwave stand-up pouches, side-gusset bags, mail order bags and more. 

They also offer short-runs on digitally-printed products including bags & pouches.

Simon Balderson added: “There’s so much interest in products such as the Earthpouch, and other stand-up pouches, that we’ve already agreed a six-figure investment on a new stand-up pouch machine, which can also manufacture side-gusset and flat pouches.

“B&G joined us earlier in the year at Packaging Innovations at the NEC, with the Earthpouch forming part of our stand, and we were absolutely inundated with inquiries.

“We’ve also added a new sales team member, Vince Larson, to focus on B&G Products.”

Sirane is an innovative packaging design, development, manufacture and solutions company which specialises in areas including absorbency and ovenable/microwaveable products, compostable packaging, films, boards, absorbent pads, and much more.

We also manufacture a range of medical (under the Enaris brand), horticultural, and specialist products – and B&G Products have the potential to manufacture products across all sectors.

As well as manufacturing and offices in the UK (Telford, Shropshire), we have additional sites in Mexico, Poland, Russia, South Africa and Turkey – as well as a network of agents and distributors – offering a global presence, with sales in more than 100 countries.

Enaris will visit Exposanita in Bologna

ENARIS will be visiting Exposanità in Bologna next week - where among other things we’ll be looking for potential distributors for our medical/healthcare product range.

Exposanità – an international healthcare exhibition – is the second largest in Europe in terms of number of exhibitors and the product ranges on show.

It includes dedicated sections on hospitals; orthopaedics and rehabilitation; diagnostics; laboratories; emergency healthcare and even animal health.

Mark Lingard, Marketing Manager, said: “Exposanità’s an intriguing show, with so many diverse companies from across the healthcare spectrum in the same place at the same time, so it is a great opportunity. For any potential overseas distributors interested in any of our products this could be a good opportunity to meet.”

Enaris – the new name for Sirane’s medical division – has been created to service numerous sectors - and we’d be particularly interested to talk to people selling into hospitals   – as we have products for operating theatre/scrubs area/maternity use – as well as laboratories, veterinary surgeries, and the emergency services.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, Enaris MD, said: “The range of standard products offered by Enaris is quite varied, including anti-slip absorbent floor mats, absorbent wadding, absorbent tray-liners, absorbent tourniquet drapes, specimen transport bags and absorbent pouches, nylon autoclave bags and much more.

 “We have some established, popular products - Enaris recently secured a framework agreement for supply of the anti-slip disposable absorbent floor mats into the NHS – and this is an excellent product offering distributors real potential.

“But Enaris is as much about potential products, as we have expertise in absorbency and material science which lends itself to a range of potential products. If it’s something you think we might be able to develop, we’d love the opportunity.

“Exposanità’s also an opportunity to discuss any development projects you may have and find out whether our development team can make it happen.”

Enaris has drawn on Sirane’s expertise in areas including absorbency and material science – as well as from listening to the needs of the market – to create a portfolio of products, many of which are available to buy online from www.enaris.co.uk

Enaris will be visiting the Exposanità fair on Wednesday, April 18. If you’re at the show, and think it might be worth meeting, then email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
