Rahway Steel Drum was acquired by Novvia in December last year.

JWJ founder and owner William Guttridge Jr said: “We look forward to leveraging the resources of the national Novvia platform, including the company’s existing presence in the New Jersey marketplace, to deliver additional value to both existing and prospective customers.”

The acquisition marks Novvia’s third in the Northeastern US region, an area identified by the company as a strategic and high-growth market.

This month, Novvia also announced the acquisition of Ocean State Packaging for an undisclosed sum. The agreement marks the entry of Novvia into the New England market of the US.

Novvia is a provider of packaging solutions and customised services that serve domestic and international customers across various industries.

With the addition of JWJ, Novvia’s family of dynamic companies now includes Inmark, C.L. Smith, Silver Spur, Container Supply, and many others.
