SupplyOne acquires Provident Packaging Corp

SupplyOne, Inc. has confirmed it has acquired Provident Packaging Corp, 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 & 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.

“SupplyOne provides the growth engine we were seeking 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.

The Provident Packaging acquisition is SupplyOne’s third in the Northeast since 2021 when it acquired Bell Container, located in Newark, New Jersey, and Romanow Container, headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.

“The acquisition of Provident Packaging is another important step in the execution of our growth strategy,” said Bill Leith, Executive Chairman, SupplyOne. “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. We are delighted to welcome Provident Packaging’s capable employees into the SupplyOne family.”
