MJH Moskwa, Jarmul, Haladyj has advised BA Glass on its acquisition of the glass production business in Orzesze, Poland, from the Canpack Group's CP Glass.

Closing is expected during the first half of 2024, pending regulatory approval.

According to the firm, BA Glass is the fourth-largest producer of glass packaging in the world, employing over 5,000 people. It operates 13 plants out of which two are located in Poland, two in Bulgaria, one in Romania, and one in Greece.
