Transaction Positions AEP as a Preferred Supplier of Flexible Packaging

The integration of the Plastic Films segment positions AEP as a preferred supplier of flexible packaging by bringing together two producers that are industry leaders across many product categories.  Atlantis’ Linear Stretch films business will become part of AEP’s Stretch film operations and Atlantis’ Custom Films division will be folded into AEP’s Proformance Films operations, which will focus on highly engineered specialty high–performance mono and coextruded products.  In addition, the Plastics Films institutional products division will be folded into AEP’s institutional products division.  The combinations of these groups will provide unmatched capabilities in the industry and exponential improvement in the individual product offerings.  Plastic films products are used in a variety of applications, including storage, transportation, food packaging, appliance, building products and other commercial and consumer applications.
