“Joining with Logson, as our ideal partner, allows us to expand and evolve our market leading capabilities and drive customer service to new levels.”

David Richardson, Logson Group CEO, added: “Challenge Packaging is a great addition to the Logson family, and we are pleased to have acquired the business allowing us to expand our reach into the Southeast of the country.

There is a strong correlation between the two organisations in terms of culture, drive, and approach to customers. We are very excited to be able to share expertise and capabilities with the wider Logson Group.”
