Aug. 2, 2017 - Georgia-Pacific has expanded its corrugated packaging business with the acquisition of Ohio-based PAX Corrugated Products. PAX operates a corrugated sheet plant with more than 100 employees in Lebanon, Ohio.

“Georgia-Pacific has had a working relationship with PAX Corrugated for many years so we knew their organization would be an excellent fit with the GP Corrugated team,” said Billy Medof, president – GP Corrugated. “The PAX team will continue to deliver quality products and service to their customers as they do today. Their graphics and converting proficiency will accelerate our growth in digitally printed sheets from our Digital Print Solutions business and their display capability will expand our growing display business.”

Founded in 1991, PAX Corrugated Products serves a customer base in food, pharmaceuticals, automotive and other consumer products industries.

“The packaging industry has come a long way from when I became involved in the 1960s,” said Stan Bernard, co-founder of PAX Corrugated Products. “Today, the industry is more advanced than ever and we’re happy to see Georgia-Pacific assume ownership. I’m confident they will be good stewards of the quality and reputation we have maintained as a company.”
