ITW Sells it's Packaging Operations

Private equity firm buys ITW industrial packaging business


By: Jim Johnson

February 6, 2014

Illinois Tool Works Inc. is selling off its global industrial packaging business, which represents a significant chunk of its annual sales, in a deal with a well-known private equity firm.

The move is part of a larger plan to narrow the company’s portfolio.

The Carlyle Group is paying in a $3.2 billion for the packaging assets that include strap, stretch and protective consumables, tools and equipment used to bundle, ship and protect goods. Those packaging products are made from plastic, steel and paper.

Brands within the packaging segment include Signode, Strapex, Orgapack, Angleboard and Mima.

Carlyle expects the transaction, subject to regulatory approval, to close by the middle of this year.

Stretch Film Pricing and the Pending Increase

The below information came from The Plastics Exchange and is a good look at what the spot and contract markets are doing. It appears that $.02 cpp is already through and the balance has a good chance of passing through as well. CMAI is already reporting the full increase is a done deal. We are moving lead times out by 1 week on all pre-stretch items and the order rate for all products has been high. Lead times are currently at 4 weeks or less for all products except pre-stretch which is at 4 weeks for standard and 5 weeks for made-to-order. Please look over your inventory needs and make plans with your customers to place orders by the end of next week if possible. Thanks for your continued business and call me if you have any questions.
