Wine packaging company Sparflex has taken over Pacifix, an Australian producer of wire hoods for sparkling wine bottles. Pacifix, a family-owned company run by Roger Young, is a prominent wire hood supplier for both the Australian and Californian sparkling wine industries. “This acquisition will allow Sparflex to structure and grow its business in Australia and Asia,” a spokesperson for the French company said. The Sparflex Group currently generates a turnover of $90 million and has production facilities in France, Spain and California.
