Pratt Display continues its rapid expansion with the purchase of a fulfillment business from Ohio-based Quality Associates.
The deal includes a full service stand-alone contract packing operation in West Chester, Ohio, three separate in-plant business operations for St. Bernard Soap Co. and The J.M. Smucker Company in Ohio, and an additional in-Distribution Center operation in Riverside, Maryland that provides fulfillment for Procter and Gamble.
The acquisition follows the greenfielding and opening last spring by Pratt Display of a 450,000 square foot operation in Walton, KY which provides contract packing, sophisticated pick and pack, and national distribution for consumer product clients.
In addition to these moves, the division also tripled capacity at its Hebron, KY display manufacturing plant over the past year.
“This acquisition is aligned with our Five-Year strategic plan that includes growing our business through value added services such as contract manufacturing to provide our customers with an end to end solution,” said company chairman Anthony Pratt.
“It solidifies our position in the market as one of the three largest providers of turnkey services, extends our national footprint and further strengthens our participation in broader segments of the POP industry.”
Pratt Display now conducts contract packing operations in eight locations around the country.
Quality Associates has been a leader within the contract manufacturing industry for many years. The company was founded in 1987 and employs over 200 people.
