Headquartered in Chattanooga, TN, NPG provides a broad range of display products and services to many of the world’s retailers. NPG employs approximately 400 co-workers and operates two manufacturing facilities in Chattanooga and one in Las Vegas.
“NPG’s focus on retailers, their innovative retail solutions and large-format printing capability expands our customer base and significantly improves RockTenn’s ability to provide retail insights, innovation and connectivity to all of our customers,” said Craig Gunckel, executive vice president, RockTenn, and general manager, RockTenn Merchandising Displays.
NPG, known for their commitment to quality, creativity, and customer satisfaction, will operate as RockTenn Retail Solutions.
