WADSWORTH, OHIO (Feb. 14, 4 p.m. ET) — Packaging firm Rohrer Corp. is off to a roaring start in 2012, making two acquisitions in the first two months of the year.

The latest addition for Wadsworth, Ohio-based Rohrer is Hogue Printing Solutions, a commercial and package printing specialist based in Mesa, Ariz. In a Feb. 13 news release announcing the deal, Rohrer President and CEO Scot Adkins said that Hogue’s “equipment, products and culture fit us very nicely, and their location is perfect for serving the western part of the country.”

In addition, Hogue uses botanical inks and recycles 95 percent of its waste. No purchase price was disclosed in the deal.

News of the acquisition comes only five weeks after Rohrer bought thermoformer Buckell Plastic Co. of Lewistown, Pa. Rohrer itself has been owned by private equity firm ShoreView Industries of Minneapolis since early 2010.

Rohrer generates about 30 percent of its sales from thermoforming, with the remainder coming from paper cardstock and folding paper cartons.
