(Fredonia, WI) Mark Smiley, CEO of Badger Paperboard – a chipboard converting company headquartered in Fredonia, Wisconsin – today announces the acquisition of Falcon Packaging in Houston, Texas.
The addition of Falcon Packaging’s full converting and warehousing facilities in Houston will expand Badger’s footprint and production capabilities. Currently, Badger Paperboard operates from four strategically located facilities across the nation, with services extending from Canada to Mexico.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer greater benefits to our customers through this acquisition,” says Chad Kravick, Vice President of Badger Paperboard. “Our new Houston operation will provide more production and warehousing capacity, which means we can turn product around more quickly – especially for our Texas and Southwestern customers.”
Established in 2003, Falcon Packaging & Converting’s warehousing facility is capable of maintaining an inventory minimum of 800 tons. Paperboard is converted onsite into a wide range of board grades and calipers, and kraft paper is slit and rolled into standard sizes.
In addition to gaining the business’s existing warehousing facilities and footprint, Badger will be adding a new Kornerguard machine to the location to better serve customers.
“We’re especially looking forward to connecting with Houston customers who previously relied on Falcon,” says Kravick. “Badger is bringing our streamlined processes, exceptional customer service, and competitive pricing with us. I’m confident that customers will find a lot to love about working with Badger!”
