Central National Gottesman Inc. (CNG), which owns a range of sales and distribution businesses in the global pulp, paper, tissue, packaging, wood products and metals industries, announced today that its Spicers Paper division has acquired Premiere Packaging Industries.

Premiere Packaging Industries (PPI), based in Cerritos, Calif., is a full-line packaging supply distributor that has been in business since 1999. PPI specializes in providing customers with custom and stock corrugated and poly products used in a range of sectors, particularly manufacturing and large-scale distribution operations.

“We have been committed during the past few years to developing our capabilities within the packaging industry,” says Andrew Wallach, CNG President and CEO. “Our North American Distribution business is focused on accelerating that growth by providing a broader range of packaging products and solutions to our new and existing customers, and the acquisition of Premiere Packaging is consistent with that strategy.”


PPI President John Luyben will report to Spicers President Jan Gottesman, and the company will continue to operate independently under its Premiere Packaging Industries name.

“We look forward to welcoming the PPI team to Spicers Paper, and sharing our core strengths of technology, product availability and logistics as we continue to build our packaging business throughout the West,” says Gottesman. “PPI has deep expertise in the packaging industry that will benefit all of our packaging customers in the future.”
