Memphis, Tennessee, and Buena Park, California, USA, 07 May 2010 -- (Marketwire) - The Kent H. Landsberg Company (a division of Amcor Packaging Distribution) obtained official approval by a Memphis bankruptcy court to purchase the assets of Wurzburg, a 102-year old packaging and printing services company.
Wurzburg, based in Memphis and the mid-south's largest provider of packaging solutions, is a strategic addition for the Kent H. Landsberg Company. The acquisition anchors Landsberg's presence in the eastern United States and greatly infuses that market with innovative packaging solutions backed by an extensive global supplier base, optimal logistics, and a proven operational infrastructure.
Since 1947, Landsberg has offered its customers a one-stop source for a full range of packaging materials, packaging equipment, and industrial supplies. Its intense focus on customer service excellence and reliability has been a cornerstone of its rapid and successful growth in the United States, Mexico, and Asia.
According to Bernie Salvatore, Landsberg's president, "Wurzburg has earned a rich history in the marketplace and enjoys a reputation for outstanding customer service. The Wurzburg name has been an integral part of the community and we are thrilled to be a part of that legacy. Our values are aligned and with our combined resources we will work hard to earn the continued trust and confidence of our customers, co-workers and suppliers."
