Our history and Legacy Businesses

Greif Flexible Products & Services was formed in 2010 with the acquisitions of Ligtermoet, Storsack, Sunjüt, and Ünsa. For decades, these legacy companies were recognized as industry leaders in flexible industrial packaging. Each had a reputation of trust, quality and reliability and a history of providing innovative products and outstanding customer service. We’ve brought these businesses together to create the industry’s premier productivity partner for our customers.
