Rehrig Pacific Announces Sale of Pails Division: Polyethylene Containers Inc. to Acquire Segment from National Solutions Provider
Los Angeles (December 4, 2020) National supply chain solutions company Rehrig Pacific announced today the sale of its Pails division to Arkansas-based manufacturer Polyethylene Containers Inc. (PCI). The sale transfers a product line that Rehrig Pacific built rapidly from the ground up in recent years as part of a strategy of constant innovation and diversification to meet clients’ supply chain needs.
“Business is always changing” said Will Rehrig, president and owner of Rehrig Pacific. “When my great grandfather started this business in 1913, we made wooden battery crates. Today, I’m proud to say that we are constantly innovating and building new product lines that set a standard for quality and reliability. This is a smart strategic move for two forward-thinking companies, that will help both of us serve our customers better.”
PCI CEO Walter Tyson agreed. “Rehrig Pacific has a strong reputation for excellent manufacturing and product development, and we’re proud to be carrying this product line forward at PCI. Rehrig Pacific’s Pails business will complement and bolster our existing work in the same category and expand our ability to deliver just the right product to a wide range of customers.”
The sale is expected to conclude by March 2021. PCI will partner with Rehrig Pacific throughout the transition to fully meet all outstanding requirements for existing Rehrig Pacific customers, and no other Rehrig Pacific products or divisions will be impacted by the sale.
