For Westfall Technik, the CPP acquisition is very much about beauty: “This highly strategic, synergistic deal greatly strengthens our presence in the fast-moving consumer goods segment,” says Mark Gomulka, Westfall’s Chief Operating Officer, in his remarks to the press earlier this month.
“CPP Global is a valued packaging supplier to several leading personal care and beauty companies, such as L’Oréal (serving their L’Oréal Paris and Kiehl’s brands), Estée Lauder, and Burt’s Bees, among others,” emphasizes Gomulka.
CPP specializes in plastic packaging components such as heavy-wall PET jars, jar caps, seal disks, liners, compacts, bottles, and tubes for lip balm and other solid-stick format cosmetic and personal care products.

The CPP acquisition also adds injection molding facilities and manufacturing capabilities in new regions here in the US as well as internationally to the Westfall business: 2 facilities here in the US in North Carolina, and 1 in Kaiping, China.
“This provides a further supply-chain advantage to Westfall when it comes to serving key customers in both the packaging and healthcare sectors,” says Merritt Williams, Chief Commercial Officer for Westfall, adding that, “CPP’s North Carolina plants are ideally located to serve the multitude of brand owners with a manufacturing presence in the surrounding area.”
Together the 3 CCP facilities comprise close to 100 injection molding machines as well as high-volume automated assembly and decorating capabilities. For Westfall Founder and CEO Brian Jones, the acquisition deal is “just the next step in creating a truly world-class molding and tooling business that is built on a strong culture and unquestionable customer service.”
For Brian Tauber, CEO of CPP it’s an opportunity to grow the company’s reach. “I’m thrilled to combine our strengths with the breadth and depth of Westfall’s capabilities to enhance our ability to provide our employees, customers, and other stakeholders with more opportunities to grow together,” says Tauber is this month’s release.
