Conner Industries Inc., a leading provider of lumber, industrial wood crates & pallets, and packaging solutions, announced today that it has acquired RoseMill Packaging Resources LLC, an industrial packaging company based in Lewisburg, Tennessee.
RoseMill is a provider of industrial packaging solutions offering a range of manufacturing and services products utilizing combinations of wood, corrugate, plastic and foam packaging. Its customers are top-tier enterprises in the HVAC, Automotive, Appliance and Packaging industry sectors. No price for the transaction was released.
Mike Rose, VP of Sales, and Spencer Miller, VP of Operations, are continuing in their current roles at RoseMill, and both will take on expanded responsibilities to assist Conner manufacturing plants, and their salesmen, expand into more value-added packaging competencies.
RoseMill’s unique industrial packaging solutions will be offered to all of Conner’s customers, providing the opportunity to scale its solutions across Conner’s existing footprint of eleven manufacturing plants throughout the Southern U.S. Conner’s and RoseMill’s philosophy and laser focus on providing exceptional customer service are tightly aligned.
The acquisition of RoseMill squarely fits into Conner’s long-term strategic plan of expanding more deeply into the packaging industry, while continuing to accelerate growth in its core lumber business, leveraging its existing manufacturing facilities, and entering new geographic markets and industries not currently serviced today.
“We welcome RoseMill to the Conner family. We believe their expertise in the industrial packaging industry will allow Conner to better service our existing customers and attract new strategic partners with creative and cost-effective packaging solutions,” said David Dixon, CEO of Conner Industries.
“We believe that Conner, a leading player in the industrial packaging industry, is the perfect company for RoseMill to partner with as we begin expanding our reach into new growing market segments,” said Mike Rose. “Together, Conner and RoseMill will take a proven customer-service driven strategy to a market that is seeking partners and suppliers who are best able to provide more value-added services,” Mike added.
