Pregis Corp., a Deerfield, Ill.-based supplier of protective packaging solutions, acquired Inter-Pac, Inc., based in Tupelo, Miss., for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition will make Pregis the largest producer of polyethylene sheet foam in the United States.

"We are pleased to add Inter-Pac's Tupelo facility to Pregis' manufacturing footprint. Its geographic location will be an asset in servicing the protective packaging needs of our East Coast customers. This investment is the latest example of our commitment to our growth strategy," says Kevin Baudhuin, president and CEO of Pregis.

Pregis will continue to operate Inter-Pac's 180,000-square-foot Tupelo manufacturing facility. Its 25 employees will be joining Pregis' 2,000-member worldwide team.
