Baker McKenzie has advised Cartonplast on the acquisition of the French branch of Demes Palettenlogistik, a German company. Cartonplast is a leading player in the reconditioning of plastic layer pads (PLPs), which are indispensable for the transport of glass, metal or PET containers in the food industry. The Cartonplast model encourages the reuse of these materials and is built upon strong commitments in terms of respect for the environment.
This acquisition will enable Cartonplast to strengthen its operational capacity in France. The Demes centre, based in Dagneux, specialises in reconditioning PLPs for the transport of glass containers and is an addition to CPL’s 14 existing centres established worldwide.

In Paris, the team included Guillaume Nataf, partner, Elise Favier and Solenne Gilles, associates for M&A aspects. Fabrice Varandas, associate, worked on the real estate aspects of the deal. Charles Baudoin and Matthieu Sabonnadière, associates, worked on the fiscal aspects and Denise Broussal, Nadège Dallais, partners, and Marie-Amélie Roger, associate, worked on Labour Law aspects. Alex Dowding, partner, on trade law aspects. In Düsseldorf, Cosima Koenig, associate, also worked on Corporate aspects.
