Integrated manufacturer of corrugated and consumer packaging, RockTenn has acquired NPG, Inc., an independent merchandising displays company, in an effort to expand its retail innovation and solutions capabilities.

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. Phil Harris, formerly chief executive officer of NPG, has been named vice president and general manager, RockTenn Retail Solutions. Harris will continue to manage the operations along with his current leadership team.

“NPG is a strong strategic fit for us that will strengthen our display business,” said Steve Voorhees, RockTenn’s chief executive officer.  “I am excited to have the NPG team join RockTenn and look forward supporting their continued success.”
