TimBar acquires Hanover Packaging; S&H Express acquires H&F Campbell and Sons

By ,

TimBar Packaging & Display said this week it has acquired Hanover Packaging.

Hanover Packaging has been in business for more than 89 years and has “an outstanding reputation for service,” said Matt Heleva, president and CEO of TimBar.

“This purchase provides TimBar with an immediate and exciting growth opportunity based on the ability to better service our customers and markets by expanding our retail packaging offering to include folding cartons, rigid boxes and plastic boxes,” Heleva added. “It also provides the opportunity for Hanover Packaging’s customers to consolidate vendors and purchase a fully integrated merchandising solution from TimBar that includes displays, fulfillment as well as retail packaging, all from one source.”

Also headquartered in Hanover, TimBar is a privately owned, independent manufacturer of corrugated containers, retail packaging and point-of-purchasing displays. The company also offers protective foam inserts, packaging supplies and fulfillment services.

TimBar has additional locations in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Illinois and Rhode Island.

Hanover Packaging began in 1925 as Reliable Paper Box, a Philadelphia company. Operations were moved to Hanover in 1988, the company reports on its website.

Perry County deal

S&H Express of York recently acquired H&F Campbell and Sons, a trucking company in Greenwood Township, Perry County.

“Together we can provide more services to the customers,” said Frank Campbell, vice president of H&F Campbell.

In business since 1933, H&F Campbell has 37 trucks and eight independent contractors, Campbell said. The third generation of Campbells is now running the family business, he added.

S&H Express started in 1992 with the purchase of a small trucking company in Lancaster County. The company relocated to York in 1998 and has been growing since, S&H reports on its website.

S&H delivers to 48 states with a staff of about 235 drivers and a combined fleet of 200 tractors and 750 trailers.
