Foodservice packaging distributor Imperial Dade has reached an agreement to purchase US-based industrial paper products provider Jackson Newell Paper Company.

Imperial Dade has not revealed the financial details of the deal, which is its 31st acquisition under the leadership of CEO and president Robert and Jason Tillis.

With the addition of Jackson Newell, Imperial Dade will strengthen its position as a speciality distributor with 67 facilities in the country.

The acquisition will also boost Imperial Dade’s commitment to providing essential supplies amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Imperial Dade president Jason Tillis said: “The acquisition of Jackson Newell provides us with a foothold in the large and growing Mississippi market, which is key as we expand geographically and grow nationally with our customers. We enthusiastically welcome the Jackson Newell family into Imperial Dade.”

Jackson Newell is headquartered in Meridian, Mississippi, and has been operating for more than 90 years.
