ADDISON, Ill. (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

B2B Industrial Packaging just announced that it has acquired the Lesker Company, one of the most highly regarded industrial packaging suppliers in the U.S. Lesker specializes in industrial strapping and related products.

Scott Lesker, president of Lesker Company, said, “The acquisition gives us the ability to retain and expand our current customer base with the resources of a leading packaging supply company. In addition to faster turnaround times, our clients will notice faster delivery times, more product availability, greater tool repair capabilities, and even better customer service.”

Founded in 1968, the Lesker Company distributes a complete line of regular-duty strapping, high tensile steel strapping (including AAR spec), polypropylene and polyester strapping; and individual and magazine seals for steel and poly strapping. Businesses they serve include tubing companies, meat packaging centers, lumberyards and steel service centers. They offer the same brands as the biggest strapping suppliers along with superior service.

Pat Yonkus, vice president of B2B Industrial Packaging, said, “We are proud to be acquiring a company with such deep roots in the strapping business. The move will allow us to serve both Lesker’s clients and our clients better from a number of standpoints, including a broader product range and even better availability.”

Clients of both companies will notice only positive changes—with all contact information, including email addresses, physical addresses, and phone numbers staying the same. ““For someone like me that has spent a good portion of his career selling strapping, this acquisition is quite exciting,” Yonkus said. “The Chicago area has been the center of the universe for strapping products and Lesker has always been a huge part of this story. We expect the acquisition will further cement our position as one of the fastest growing industrial packaging suppliers in the U.S.”
