From WBM, Australia’s Wine Business Magazine – 8 June 2018

Wine packaging company San Miguel Yamamura Australasia (SMYA) has added JMP Holdings to its growing portfolio of wine suppliers.

JMP Holdings, which specialises in retail and online packaging, cargo and materials handling, joins Vinocor, Cospak, Best Bottlers, Portavin, Endeavour Glass and Barossa Bottling in the SMYA stable.

“The addition bolsters SMYA’s position in the Australasian market and was the obvious next step in line with our growth plans,” SMYA chief operating officer Ross Sinclair said.

“This acquisition brings a wider scope of wine packaging products which complements our existing businesses such as Enviro tuff liners, slip sheets, pallets, desiccants and the list goes on. It also allows us entry into new markets where we previously had no presence.

“We are now considered a one-stop-shop in a growing market, allowing our customers to take advantage and bundle their purchases through our SMYA group of businesses, from glass, dividers, cartons, screwcaps, cork and contract filling.

“The group is delighted with this latest acquisition, the transition has been seamless and we look forward to combining JMP Holdings’ products and experience to all SMYA’s customers.”
