A&R Carton offers the whole range from the basic cigarette packaging to the premium segment, with first class finishing effects and special opening. Our extensive experience within tobacco packaging gives you an outstanding service and a versatility of options in design, printing and finishing.

As a European leader in tobacco packaging we know the requirements and have what it takes for long time cooperation.

As a member of AR Packaging, the A&R Carton tobacco packaging offer increases substantially

AR Packaging announced in May 2015 the closing of the previously announced acquisition of the European tobacco, chocolate confectionery and general packaging operations from MeadWestvaco Corporation. The transaction was successfully completed and the business was consolidated as from May 1st, 2015.

The acquired operation includes three plants in Graz, Austria, Krakow, Poland, and Moscow, Russia, and certain additional carton business and related machinery in Svitavy, Czech Republic. AR Packaging will operate the acquired business under the A&R Carton brand.

-“We are happy to finalise this strategic move for AR Packaging where we establish an even stronger position as one of the leaders in the tobacco segment while enhancing the strategic position of key accounts in the confectionery and consumer goods segments. We elevate AR Packaging to a top three position in the European folding carton market with a total group net revenue of approximately 550 million EUR”, said Harald Schulz, CEO of AR Packaging.
- “I look very much forward to integrating the newly acquired operations. This is an important milestone in realizing our growth strategy in selected market segments.”
