Aug. 29, 2017 - Atlantic Packaging Products of Scarborough, Ont., has announced a strategic partnership with York Container Company of York, Penn.

“It is business as usual for our employees and customers at York Container, only now we have the advantage of having the support of a strategic partner committed to industry-leading innovation and customer service over a broader geographic platform,” says Julian Tolbert, COO at York Container Company.

A private family-owned business founded in 1954, York Container Company is an independent manufacturer of corrugated containers and retail packaging.

“York Container is committed to growth and providing innovative solutions to our customers. We have enjoyed robust growth over the past several years, but we believe that in order to take our plans to the next level we need to partner with a like-minded company to expand geographically and extend our capabilities to a broader customer base,” said Stephen Tansey, president and representative of YCC shareholders. “After an evaluation of our various options, we are thrilled to join forces with Atlantic. This is the best possible outcome for all of our stakeholders, in particular, our customers and employees.”

Meanwhile, Dave Boles, president of Atlantic Packaging says the company has worked hard to identify growth-oriented partners in the northern U.S. for several years. “The more we got to know York and their senior executive team, the more we realized that we had two companies with incredibly strong strategic alignment,” he says.

Irving Granovsky, chairman of Atlantic Packaging, describes the rationale for this transaction, “Atlantic is always looking for progressive and well-managed companies to team up with. We feel York Container is a wonderful addition to our partnership portfolio.”

Atlantic Packaging Products is a privately-owned integrated corrugated packaging company, providing customers with packaging solutions through its key business divisions, which include: corrugated and colour packaging, recycled paper mills, retail packaging and displays, paper bag products, supply and inventory management, and recycling.
