SupplyOne acquires Wilheit Packaging

SupplyOne, Inc. has confirmed it has completed the acquisition of Wilheit Packaging, LLC., a privately-held distributor of shipping, packaging and maintenance products headquartered in Gainesville, Georgia.

Founded in 1953 by Tom Wilheit, Wilheit Packaging got its start supplying packaging for the poultry and textile industries in Georgia. Under the leadership of Philip Wilheit, Sr., the company has become a leading supplier to the Georgia, Alabama and Carolina marketplace, and a strong presence in corrugated, poly films and end-of- line packaging. Today the company serves food processors and industrial manufacturers alike in more than 15 states from their facilities in Gainesville and Atlanta, Georgia, Wilmington and Warsaw, North Carolina, and Arab, Alabama.

As the company has grown, Wilheit Packaging has maintained a reputation for its forward-thinking, customer- focused approach to its customers’ packaging challenges. As an early leader in sustainability, the company distinguished itself through logistics and waste diversion solutions in partnership with several waste and recycling centers.

The acquisition of Wilheit Packaging is SupplyOne’s third this year. The addition further expands SupplyOne’s footprint in the region and enhances the value created for customers by offering manufacturers and processors the benefits of custom manufacturing, packaging products, packaging equipment, services, and programs from a single point of contact.

“Wilheit Packaging’s focus on helping their customers be more profitable mirrors our own. The synergies that result from combining SupplyOne’s manufacturing expertise, services, and programs with Wilheit’s impressive distribution capabilities position the company well for continued growth,” said William Leith, CEO and President, SupplyOne. “We are delighted to welcome their employees into the SupplyOne family.”
