Newtown Square, PA based SupplyOne, Inc., one of the largest independent suppliers of corrugated and other value-added packaging products in the United States, has announced the acquisition of Provident Packaging Corporation, a privately-held distributor of industrial packaging supplies headquartered in Philadelphia, PA. 

Established in 1967 by Lewis Gerber and his son, Allen Gerber, Provident Packaging has provided high-quality industrial packaging solutions for over 50 years. Today, third-generation Gerber family members James Gerber, President, and Adam Gerber, Director, Sales and Marketing, lead the business. Together, they continue the legacy of personalized, value-added service that has made the company an indispensable supply chain partner for Mid-Atlantic manufacturers.

As a distributor of quality corrugated packaging, films, tapes, protective packaging, safety, and janitorial supplies, the Provident Packaging team made its mark by helping customers enhance their efficiencies and streamline their operations. The ability to help customers navigate challenges and increase profitability was central to the brothers’ decision to become a SupplyOne company. 

“SupplyOne provides the growth engine we were seeking (or looking for) to take our business to the next level for our customers and employees,” said Adam Gerber. “Becoming a SupplyOne company enhances every aspect of our business.”

“The acquisition significantly expands our product and service offering to include custom manufacturing, primary packaging, packaging equipment, and additional services to bring new savings and cash flow to our customers,” said James Gerber. 

This is SupplyOne’s third acquisition in the Northeast since 2021 when it acquired Newark, New Jersey based Bell Container and Boston, Massachusetts based Romanow Container.

“The acquisition of Provident Packaging is another important step in the execution of our growth strategy,” said SupplyOne’s Executive Chairman, Bill Leith. “The combination of our corrugated converting capabilities, value-added service and programs with Provident’s strong customer base and distribution expertise will allow to us to serve more customers in the important Pennsylvania and New Jersey area.”
