Rock Tenn announced that it has closed on its acquisition of the assets of Mid South Packaging LLC, a specialty corrugated packaging manufacturer with operations in Cullman, Alabama, and Olive Branch, Mississippi, from Coridel Capital Partners.

"The acquisition of Mid South, a company well-known for its profitable business model and efficient, well-run operations, is in keeping with our announced strategy to seek acquisitions that increase our integration level," said James A. Rubright, RockTenn’s Chairman and CEO.

"Adding Mid South’s unique customers to RockTenn’s already diversified customer base further strengthens our market reach," Rubright added.

Mid South supplies specialized packaging to the automotive parts industry; bulk boxes to the poultry and meat industries; and high-end corrugated packaging and retail displays to consumer packaged goods companies.
