Irving-based AmeriPac LLC and Ameripac Pennsylvania have been acquired by Atlanta-based Veritiv Corp., a specialty distributor of value-added packaging, facility solutions and print products and solutions.

AmeriPac is a leading provider of turnkey contract packaging and fulfillment services with annual revenues of roughly $60 million. No financial details of the acquisition were released.

“At AmeriPac, we’ve 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,” CEO Greg Wren said in a statement. “Joining the Veritiv team represents an opportunity to expand our services and our reach through Veritiv’s established commercial infrastructure, packaging procurement and distribution expertise, and enhanced design and testing capabilities.”

Wren added that he and his team anticipated “building on our current success and enhancing our service to customers as part of the Veritiv team.”

Complex packaging solutions

Founded in 1989, the AmeriPac business adds “meaningful 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, Veritiv said.

The AmeriPac business serves customers in a variety of high-growth segments, anchored by an attractive customer base in the cosmetic and personal care industries, the company said.

“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,” Veritiv CEO Sal Abbate said in a statement. “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.”

Abbate said that he was looking forward to bringing on AmeriPac’s employees, customers, and suppliers “as we further expand our position as a leading provider of packaging solutions and continue delivering innovative and sustainable products and services to our customers today—and into the future.”

AmeriPac said its business workforce of almost 600 is in Grapevine, Dallas, and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
