Marcal Paper Acquires Von Drehle Corporation
Marcal Paper, a manufacturer of recycled and eco-friendly bath, towel, and tissue products, has acquired von Drehle Corporation, a provider of towel and tissue products for the away-from-home market. Von Drehle Corporation will operate as a division of Marcal Paper. The parties involved did not disclose the terms of the transaction.
Headquartered in Hickory, NC, Von Drehle Corporation was founded in 1974. The company’s more than 500 associates operate production facilities throughout the southeastern United States and in Las Vegas, NV.
The combined company now provides customers with a broader product range and enhanced scale, expanding Marcal’s footprint to service customers along the East Coast and across the country.
“We are excited to welcome von Drehle associates to the Marcal family. Over the past few years, our team has successfully weathered several storms, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have come out stronger,” Marcal Paper President and CEO Rob Baron said. “This transaction is the next step on our growth journey, and von Drehle is the right team with whom to partner. We share a commitment to being environmental leaders, community stewards and trusted employers, and we take great pride in our shared histories as family-owned companies.”
“This provides a stable path forward for von Drehle, where our talented team members can thrive, and our customers will be even better served as part of Marcal. Our roots as family-owned businesses and longtime leaders in the tissue industry have laid the foundation for a future that is stronger together,” Randy Bergman, former CEO of von Drehle Corporation, said.
