Tosca Limited, a U.S. based provider of reusable container pooling and logistics services to the food supply chain, announced that the company has acquired the reusable plastic container division of Georgia-Pacific, LLC (GP RPC). The acquisition expands the company’s portfolio of products and services offered to customers in the produce, dairy, beverage and protein industries.
“The acquisition of GP RPC allows Tosca to expand its available services to its customers, including food and beverage processors, produce growers, grocery retailers and foodservice operators.” said John Frey, CEO of Tosca. “GP RPC’s exceptional team, customer focus and premier products and services are an ideal fit with Tosca’s existing platform. The goal is to maintain our position as a nimble, customer service centric organization. Our combined companies are well-positioned and capitalized to take advantage of the substantial growth in demand for reusable container pooling services.”
The GP RPC management team and all current employees will join Tosca in conjunction with the transaction. All three of GP RPC’s facilities located in Memphis, Tenn., Garland, Texas, and King City, Calif., will continue to operate as part of the Tosca organization.
“This union will benefit fresh produce companies,” said Eric Frank, General Manager, who will continue to lead the company’s Atlanta-based produce division. “Tosca’s focus as a market leader for RPCs in multiple industries will bring best practices and accelerate the momentum already established by GP RPC in the fresh produce industry. Together our shared values and like-minded practices set the stage for a successful future.”
Both Tosca and GP RPC have proven reputations in the industries they serve. The combined business will operate under the Tosca brand and continue to place emphasis on delivering high-quality products and services to its customers.
