We’re Expanding Service Offerings with AC Packaging Acquisition.
On January 31, 2019, OrCon Industries Corporation acquired AC Packaging, a small Rochester-based wood packaging company. With this acquisition, we are expanding our product and service offering to include on-site crating and doubling our wooden packaging production space with the addition of our third plant.
New Wood Packaging Products and Services
“This acquisition rounds out our wood products offerings to our customers and allows us to be more efficient and effective in an area we were still building out ourselves,” says Mike Olson, President of OrCon Industries.
At OrCon, we are now offering our customers low-volume, quick turnaround wooden packaging solutions and on-site crating for manufacturers’ equipment, machine parts, and products.
This acquisition aims to offer both OrCon and AC Packaging customer bases higher quality products and services.
Acquiring AC Packaging
The acquisition comes as an opportunity for former AC Packaging staff.
“I met with the team at OrCon and we have similar personalities,” Rick Rugaber, AC Packaging founder, commented. “And what is really important is they are driven by the same things as I am: customer service and employee growth.”
We’re happy to welcome former AC Packaging staff to the OrCon family, and hope they will capitalize on new opportunities to learn management and business skills and continue to improve their mechanical skills by working with our top-of-the-line equipment.
“[The acquisition] was an easy decision to make because Rick and his team share the same professional and personal values as our team,” added Olson. “We are a family and they fit right in.”
For over 35 years, OrCon has been servicing Rochester and the surrounding areas from our facilities in LeRoy, NY.
Our new facility, the former AC Packaging facility is located at 175 Dewey Avenue in Rochester, NY. This is our third manufacturing plant.
