Summit Container Corporation (Summit), a protective packaging manufacturer offering contract packaging, distribution, as well as packaging equipment and supplies distribution, headquartered in Monument, CO, announced two strategic acquisitions to significantly expand and diversify its national capabilities.
Summit announced the successful acquisition of Berkeley Contract Packaging. Employing a staff of 150, Berkeley, strategically located in Kenilworth, NJ, has an 80,000 square feet FDA registered facility providing contract packaging services to major cosmetic, personal care, pharmaceutical, and medical devices manufacturers. Summit announced immediate plans to move the operation to a 160,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art facility in Monroe Township, NJ. In addition to doubling capacity, the new facility will be designed to accommodate a world-class Warehouse Management System(WMS) and Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP), a DEA registration, and expand into display fulfillment and gift set kitting.
Summit also announced that it has successfully acquired the operations of Quality Associates in Shippensburg, PA, Atlanta, GA, and the corporate management team in Cincinnati, OH. By way of this acquisition, Summit will perform contract packaging of promotional and point-of-purchase displays for Procter & Gamble at two locations. The operations consume approximately 600,000 sq. ft. and employ a staff 250.
The acquisitions of Berkeley and Quality Associates enable Summit to grow its footprint to over 1 million square feet of dedicated contract packaging operations in North America and significantly diversify the company’s capabilities to existing specialties in protective packaging and packaging supplies.
