InteliCoat Technologies, South Hadley, MA, announced it has sold its Electronic and Engineered Films (EEF) business unit to Exopack Holding, Inc., a North American flexible-packaging converter and provider of paper and plastic packaging solutions for the food, industrial, and medical industries. InteliCoat and Exopack are affiliates of Sun Capital Partners, a private investment firm.
