The company had 735 employees working in the three factories in Ghlin, Jumet and Mol. In 1985 the Belgium government became owner of Verlipack for 49%. The other 51% were in private hands of the company Beaulieu. During some economic problems in 1996, the government sold the company to Beaulieu who started a venture with the German company Heye.
