Nelipak History

Nelipak Corporation, headquartered in Cranston, RI; was founded in 1953 by Loek Nelissen and his family in Venray in the south of The Netherlands

A family run business, the packaging operation set the industry standard in 1980 by being the first European vacuum thermoformer to introduce cleanroom manufacturing.

By 1995 with the acquisition of its Irish facility, Nelipak had established itself as Europe’s market leading custom thermoformer with in-house design, development and tooling capabilities, a position it still enjoys today.

In 2005 Nelipak became part of New Jersey based Sealed Air Corporation Medical Applications business. Expansion into North America followed with the acquisition in 2007 of Alga Plastics, RI; followed in 2012 by Advanced Thermoforming Enterprises Costa Rica.

During December 2013, Mason Wells acquired the Nelipak group from Sealed Air Corporation. In July 2014, under new management, Nelipak expanded its presence in the American Southwest with the acquisition of Flexpak Corporation of Phoenix, Az. In July 2016, Nelipak acquired Tegrant Alloyd Brands of Puerto Rico, strengthening its commitment to the healthcare markets of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and broader Caribbean region. In April 2017, the company closed on the acquisition of Computer Designs of Whitehall, PA., with operations in Liberty, NC; Tuscon, AZ; and Humacao, Puerto Rico.

Today, the Nelipak Group is the only 100% focused medical and pharmaceutical cleanroom thermoformer with ISO certified operations across all its manufacturing sites. Over our 60 year history we continue to develop innovative medical packaging solutions which solve new industry challenges working with the world’s leading Medical Device and Pharmaceutical companies.
