The Millcraft Paper Company, one of the foremost privately held paper and packaging distribution companies in the United States, today acquired Greenwich, Connecticut-based Brown Paper Company.
Brown Paper Company, a leading, national distributor for the Business Forms Industry for over 28 years, serves large and mid-sized Business Forms and Direct Mail Printers with the industry’s most coveted paper mills in the continental United States.
“We are excited to be adding Brown Paper to the Millcraft organization. This acquisition reaffirms our commitment to strategically growing our business within the paper industry,” said Travis Mlakar, Millcraft’s president. “Brown Paper has built a prominent position in the forms industry by remaining conscientiously focused on meeting their customers’ needs, aligning with key mill suppliers, and adding value to their supply chain through the strong connections forged between them.”
“As our industry evolves, it is increasingly important that we expand our horizons with the products, services and capabilities we are able to bring to our customers. Millcraft offers the broader scope of products and deeper sales expertise in areas of paper and packaging which have not traditionally been a focus of our business. We are confident that Millcraft’s diversified capabilities platform will not only preserve but strengthen the great relationships we have been fortunate to develop with our customers over the last 28 years,” said Doug Brown, President of Brown Paper Company and now Millcraft’s Director of Form Solutions.
With this purchase, Millcraft continues a long history of strategic acquisitions throughout its nearly 100 years in business which not only support Millcraft’s commitment to serving the fine printing paper market, but also diversify its product and service platforms to meet the industry’s changing needs.
