Jansy Acquires CTi and Asia Pack
In April 2018 Jansy completed the acquisition of CTi, a San Francisco based packaging company focused on the beauty industry. With a production office in southern China and fulfilment partners in LA and DC, the acquisition not only extends Jansy’s US and China footprints but brings a list of high profile brand names to Jansy’s expanding client list.
CTi’s managing partner, Tom Finnegan and operations director, Kingston Ku both joined the Jansy team in April. Tom will head up the San Francisco office and Kingston joins as Managing Director of the China office and head of production for the Jansy group. The CTi team bring more than 40 years of packaging experience to the Jansy group and with facilities in LA and DC, improved kitting and pack out capabilities.
‘The time was right to join forces with a larger company’ explained Tom Finnegan ‘we have worked hard over the years and built a very successful business working with brands such as Kat Von D, Marc Jacobs and Sephora but Jansy will significantly improve our design and manufacturing capabilities and open up new opportunities with our existing customers for primary packaging as well as blending and filling. Essentially we can now provide our customers with a full ‘turnkey’ service’
‘Design and engineering are the cornerstones of the Jansy success. Being able to get creative solutions that are manufacturable will be a game changer for us. The Jansy design team based in our California office are amongst the most talented creatives I have ever worked with. It’s one thing to get good creative but altogether different to have designs created that you know can be produced without wholesale modifications or hikes in cost.’
‘We can now have discussions with our customers one day and samples in their hands the next, artwork can be modified quickly, and pre-production samples complete in just a couple of weeks. Our clients are looking to us for speed of service, for innovation and for faultless execution. That’s why the Jansy acquisition made so much sense’
