RODA Packaging senior management team announces the acquisition of all assets of the firm, via its holding company

As part of its strategic plan focused on capacity growth, management of Roda Packaging is pleased to announce it has acquired Industries Rada Ltd., after sourcing materials from the latter company for more than 10 years. Under the new designation Industries Rada (2019) Inc., the new entity will help respond positively to a specific shortage in market supply.

Smooth transition planned

The transition period, to begin April 8, 2019, will have no effect on operations or structure, thanks to the efficiency and superior adaptability of the new management team. Joining the organization will be Stéphan Berthiaume, as its President, and Isabelle Lehoux, as Chief Financial and Human Resources Officer.

An efficient, environmentally responsible production model

“With this transaction, we gain the combined strengths of production capacity, a proven sales force and a cross- Canada distribution network,” Mr. Berthiaume explains. “We believe in the intrinsic value of the made-in-Québec business model we offer our clients, and now look to reap the benefits of enhanced production capacity and of technology investments to be made in the months to come. Furthermore, we are firmly committed to becoming a collaborative lab and high-performance centre for recycled-resin reintegration. By reusing plastics diverted from landfill, we are helping lower greenhouse gas emissions: this will be our contribution to the circular economy, local
recovery and reuse efforts and, ultimately, a healthier planet for the generations to come.
