Cardiff bakery packaging firm finds buyer

A Cardiff-based greaseproof packaging firm has been bought by another south Wales based company.

The future of Lovely Packaging was in doubt after its parent company went into voluntary liquidation.

It has now been bought by Chevler which employs around 70 staff manufacturing baking cases and muffin wraps at two factories in Hengoed.

Chevler said it planned to maintain the five staff and production facilities at the unit at Cardiff Business Centre.

Lovely Packaging was set up last year with a £330,000 investment.

Chevler managing director Stuart Whelan said: "Combining the new business with Chevler's customer base will allow us to substantially grow our greaseproof range of products and offer the market something genuinely new and highly appealing".
