Packaging Partners announces purchase of Norman Roquette Inc.
Packaging Partners LLC, a packaging company that operates in Puerto Rico since 2009 and manufactures custom protective packaging and supplies, announced this week an agreement to purchase Norman Roquette Inc. (NRI), another packaging materials company operating in Puerto Rico since 1976, and merge the two companies under one roof in Trujillo Alto within the next 60 to 90 days.
Packaging Partners LLC is based in Lawrence, Mass with a manufacturing facility at 21 Glenn St. and another distribution facility at 71 Glenn St, Lawrence, Mass. Packaging Partners offers in-house design, engineering and converting services to provide custom packaging products at lower costs.
They also have distribution locations in Chicago, Dallas, and Reno, Nev., giving them a national footprint for next day delivery anywhere in the U.S. including Puerto Rico.
Packaging Partners and NRI will team up in Puerto Rico to become the island’s largest manufacturer of protective packing and distributor of packaging materials, company reps said.
Packaging Partners will be hiring all of the workers that NRI still has under employment, as part of its corporate strategy to increase its sales and support staff on the island. After the purchase, Packaging Partners will have 25 people in its staff and will be moving to its new manufacturing and distribution facility in Trujillo Alto, by November 1, 2016.
