Veritiv Corp. Buys Assets of Ameripac

Atlanta-based Veritiv Corporation, a specialty distributor of value-added packaging, facility solutions, and print products and solutions, recently announced it purchased most of the assets of Ameripac, LLC, and Ameripac Pennsylvania, LLC.

Ameripac is a provider of turnkey contract packaging and fulfillment services with annual revenues of approximately $60 million.

“The acquisition of the AmeriPac business complements our recent acquisition of Vivabox Solutions and will further enhance Veritiv’s end-to-end kitting and co-packing capabilities,” Sal Abbate, Veritiv CEO, said in a news release. “This acquisition advances our effort to create a national platform combining our leadership in packaging distribution, commercial operations, automation, and design and testing, along with best-in-class value-added solutions in kitting, co-packing, labeling, and fulfillment, to better serve customers.”

Founded in 1989, AmeriPac will add capabilities and scale to Veritiv’s existing kitting and co-packing platform with expertise in complex packaging processes and the ability to flex resources to rapidly respond to business seasonality and customer needs, according to a news release about the deal.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

AmeriPac serves customers in a variety of high-growth segments, anchored by a customer base in the cosmetic and personal care industries.

“At AmeriPac, we have built a foundation that enables us to offer our customers flexible packaging solutions for multiple types of products by combining leading-edge packaging equipment with technical know-how to maintain a high-level of accuracy throughout the process,” Greg Wren, AmeriPac CEO, said in a release.

AmeriPac has about 600 workers in Grapevine, Texas; Dallas; and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
