The Danish company supplies of gift packaging including gift wrap, gift tags, bows, ribbon and other related products. It operates a production facility in Denmark and has UK-based trading operations.

Accent Equity Partners CEO Niklas Sloutski said, “The European market for gift packaging is stable and non-cyclical in nature. Eurowrap’s management has built a strong position in Europe, with a tremendous customer base and Accent Equity will provide the resources for Eurowrap to pursue its expansion.”

Late last year confectionery retailer Candyking, which is also backed by Accent, cancelled its plans to list on the Stockholm Stock Exchange.
