Andrew Marshall, CEO of Nampak said "this acquisition is part of our strategy of investing in our core businesses where we believe we have competitive advantages.

"As a result, Nampak is looking to grow its glass operations in South Africa and the rest of Africa. This will be more easily achieved by us owning 100% of the glass business.

"Although they will no longer be shareholders in the business we are pleased that Wiegand-Glas have agreed to remain as our technical service provider."
