Tosca Limited, a US-based provider of reusable container pooling and logistics services to the food supply chain, has acquired the reusable plastic container division of Georgia-Pacific LLC (GP RPC). This acquisition expands the company’s portfolio of products and services offered in the produce, dairy, beverage, and protein industries.
“The acquisition of GP RPC allows Tosca to expand its available services to its customers, including food and beverage processors, produce growers, grocery retailers, and foodservice operators,” said John Frey, chief executive officer of Tosca. “GP RPC’s exceptional team, customer focus and premier products and services are an ideal fit with Tosca’s existing platform. The goal is to maintain our position as a nimble, customer service-centric organization.”
The GP RPC management team and all current employees will join Tosca in conjunction with the transaction. All three of GP RPC’s facilities in Memphis TN, Garland TX, and King City CA will continue to operate in the Tosca organization.
“This union will benefit fresh produce companies,” said Eric Frank, general manager, who will continue to lead the company’s Atlanta GA-based produce division. “Tosca’s focus as a market leader for RPCs in multiple industries will bring best practices and accelerate the momentum already established by GP RPC in the fresh produce industry.”
The combined business will operate under the Tosca brand and continue to place emphasis on delivering quality products and services to customers.
Based in Green Bay WI, Tosca provides services to companies seeking enhanced supply chain efficiencies and lower costs by replacing single-use packaging with reusable containers. For more details, visit www.toscaltd.com.
