Orora Limited Acquires Texas-Based Bronco Packaging Corporation

On August 31 it was announced that Bronco Packaging Corporation, a Texas-based packaging distributor serving primarily fresh food manufacturing corporate accounts, has been acquired by Australia-based Orora Limited.  News releases reveal a purchase price of up to $24 million subject to customary completion processes.

 
Located in Mesquite, TX, Bronco employs about 30 people and is a family-owned business established more than 20 years ago by Melinda Fey.  The majority of Bronco's clients are located in Texas, where the company provides 'on-demand' packaging delivery services and generates revenues of more than $50 million.
 
Orora delivers total packaging solutions and products including flexible and rigid packaging, boxes and cartons, bags, sacks, recycled paper, packaging equipment, closures and caps, and more.  Nigel Garrard, CEO and Managing Director at Orora, said "The acquisition of Bronco aligns with Orora's stated returns focused approach to allocating capital and will expand the OPS's geographic footprint and product capability in the targeted, higher growth food sector."
 
To ensure a seamless transition to new ownership, Bronco's current management staff will remain in place for a minimum of three years.  Garrard said the fact the two companies are already well acquainted will aid the consolidation of OPS and Bronco, helping achieve specific goals in regards to supply chain, procurement and back office functions over the coming one to two years.
