Partitions Plus Incorporated, a wholly owned subsidiary of Holland, Michigan based Bradford Group Incorporated, announced the asset acquisition of Findlay, Ohio based Partitions Plus LLC, one of the Midwest’s largest corrugated partition manufacturers.
The acquisition will expand Bradford’s presence in the corrugated partition market. Ben Riblet, a co-founder of the original company, will be the General Manager of the new enterprise, which will continue operations in the 80,000-square-foot facility in Findlay.
“We are excited to build on the positive customer relationships that have been formed by the Partitions Plus Team and look forward to working with the many talented people there,” said Bill Baumgartner, Senior Vice President at Bradford.
Partition Plus becomes the ninth packaging manufacturing operation of the Bradford Company, a fifth generation family-owned business with locations in the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
The Bradford Company was founded as the W.J. Bradford Paper Company in 1897 and was incorporated in 1924.
Today, Bradford is one of the largest manufacturers of industrial paperboard partitions and custom engineered reusable/returnable interior protective packaging.
In February 2022, Bradford announced a new corrugated product line producing fully assembled corrugated partitions from small 6-inch by 6-inch offerings to large pallet-sized partitions. In 2020, Bradford won the Outstanding Growth Award presented by the Western Michigan Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth, which recognizes companies that have demonstrated growth in sales, profitability or employment as well as community involvement.
