Atlantic Packaging Products Ltd. (‘Atlantic’) recently declared the acquisition of Skybox Packaging in Mansfield, Ohio. Atlantic is a top Canadian producer of corrugated and containerboard packaging products. On the other hand, Skybox produces corrugated packaging products. It also distributes packaging equipment and supplies from its 100,000+ sq. ft. facility at Mansfield.
Skybox packaging provides its clients with a service-focused model, which features extremely short lead times. The model is a combination of advanced logistics and directory management programs along with custom made non-corrugated and corrugated packaging solutions. The consumers of Skybox products are various popular brands from the food, industrial and customer end markets.
With this acquisition, Atlantic continues to strengthen its position in the US market while adding power to its already strong converting capabilities.
Atlantic’s Business Set to Improve with Acquisition of Skybox Packaging
According to Dave Boles, President of Atlantic Packaging, Skybox shares many core values of Atlantic. He said the acquisition was an initial investment to develop the production platform of Atlantic in Mansfield, Ohio. Mansfield is a great location, geographically, to develop business due to its close proximity to various key target markets.
Boles added further that under the guidance of Marty Rice, Marc Miller and other Skybox team members, Atlantic is assured of experiencing success that will encourage growth and generate jobs as well.
According to Marc Miller, President of Skybox, he joined hands with Marty Rice last year to search for an associate that shares their goal, brings new capabilities to the table and has an entrepreneurial culture.
The leadership team of Skybox decided that the associate company should have a future development plan that considers Skybox’s location and organization as its foundation. Atlantic ticked all these requirements of Skybox packaging, which paved the way for this acquisition.
Miller said they are extremely excited about the company’s future. He said joining hands with Atlantic to develop their strategic plan was something they are looking forward to.
He summed up the mood saying this acquisition was a good day for Skybox as they have partnered with builders. He signed off saying it was even a bigger news for the Mansfield area.
