In a packaging distributor development, Novvia Group is acquiring Fox Valley Containers Inc.
Fox Valley, based in Crystal Lake, Ill., distributes plastic, metal, glass and paper products from a network of five warehouses in the Upper Midwest.
The 35-year-old company has been owned by Pete Brown and Dave Brown. The partners indicated joining Novvia Group will allow for continued growth and enhanced customer service.
Novvia Group, owned by private investment firm Kelso & Co., includes Inmark, C.L. Smith, Silver Spur, Container Supply and, now, Fox Valley.
Existing Fox Valley management will remain in place, Novvia said.
