Case Paper has acquired assets from a former API Group manufacturing facility in Osgood, Indiana.

The acquisition of the laminating and coating facility will bolster its presence in the Midwestern US.

As part of the acquisition, most of the employees, as well as general manager of the facility, Jonathan Hummer, have migrated to the Case family.

Case Paper president and CEO Robin Schaffer said: “Prior to the acquisition, this site had become our most reliable partner in terms of communication and quality.

“This is a true testament to the employees and processes they currently have in place, and the reason why this is a perfect fit for Case Paper and our long term vision to consistently add value to customers through inventories, converting equipment, locations, and people.

“Additionally, it allows us to vertically integrate, control our supply chain and improve our response time.”

The acquired facility has been rebranded and will now operate as Case Makes.

Case Paper Philadelphia and Corporate Operations general manager Thomas McDonough said: “Working with Indiana’s state and local officials to bring Case Paper to Indiana has been an excellent experience, which complimented the appeal of Osgood’s strategic location, capabilities and experienced workforce.

“Osgood, IN is strategically located in close proximity to Cincinnati, OH, Louisville, KY, and Indianapolis, IN, and as a leader in laminating and coating, Case Makes’ 117,000ft2 operation perfectly complements and adds to Case Paper’s six national converting and distribution facilities.”

Founded in 1943, Case Paper is a distributor and converter of paper and board for the printing and packaging industries.

Recently, the company announced that it will continue its operations to ensure supplies to essential life sustaining industries amid the Covid-19 crisis.
