St. Louis packaging company TricorBraun is acquiring Willard-based Price Container and Packaging, a rigid packaging distributor serving primarily the industrial and food markets in the Intermountain area and the Northwest.
“An industrial packaging leader with two decades of expertise, Price Container has an outstanding reputation and long-standing customer and supplier relationships,” TricorBraun said in announcing the purchase.
All Price Container employees will remain with TricorBraun. Owner Ryan Price will play an important role in executing TricorBraun’s strategy to create a new industrial packaging platform, according to the company. The team will continue to work out of the Price’s existing locations in the Utah and southwest Washington areas. Effective with the closing of the transaction, Price Container and Packaging will operate as Price Container, a TricorBraun company.
“This is a very exciting time in Price Container’s 22-year history,” said Price. “We’re proud to join a respected packaging leader, and with TricorBraun’s expansive reach, as well as commercial and operational excellence, we can grow while offering expanded services to our customers. I also look forward to our work with our supplier partners, which continues to be an important focus.”
“Our acquisition of Price Container will significantly add to our robust range of packaging solutions by expanding our industrial presence,” said Court Carruthers, president and CEO of TricorBraun. “As we continue to provide essential, quality packaging, we look forward to serving customers with their industrial and other market needs. We welcome Price Container to the TricorBraun family.”
A portfolio company of global private investment firm AEA Investors, TricorBraun has acquired and successfully integrated more than 20 companies over the past 25 years. Price Container will mark the company’s eighth acquisition in the past three years. TricorBraun operates from more than 50 locations globally.
The transaction is expected to close in September. Terms were not disclosed.
