RockTenn moves deeper into retail display with the purchase of NPG Inc., an independent merchandising displays company with around 400 employees across two facilities, one each in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Las Vegas.

In Canada, RockTenn operates 17 facilities of various size and structure, from prepress shops and assembly locations to full-scale production plants. The company has a Canadian presence in Richmond (BC), Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Guelph, Milton, Mississauga (2), Etobicoke, Markham, Toronto, Montreal, Mount Royal, Point Aux Trembles, Saint-Marie, Warwick and La Tuque.

NPG, which provides a range of display products and services to many of the world’s most-prominent retail brands, will now operate as RockTenn Retail Solutions. Phil Harris, formerly CEO of NPG, has been named VP and GM of RockTenn Retail Solutions and will continue to manage the operation along with his current leadership team.

“NPG’s focus on retailers, their innovative retail solutions and large-format printing capability expands our customer base and significantly improves RockTenn’s ability to provide retail insights, innovation and connectivity to all of our customers,” stated Craig Gunckel, Executive VP of RockTenn and GM of RockTenn Merchandising Displays.

RockTenn, with around 26,000 employees, is one of North America's largest integrated manufacturers of corrugated and consumer packaging. In addition to Canada and the United States, the company operates locations in Mexico, Chile, Argentina and China.
