Midland Packaging and Display is a provider of high-quality corrugated packaging and display products and value-added services, from design through just-in-time distribution. Since 2008, Midland has leveraged Arbor’s expertise and extensive network of relationships to grow its customer base significantly in the food and beverage segment.
Midland Packaging & Display is a leading producer of corrugated packaging and display products based in Franksville, Wisconsin. Midland creates and manufactures corrugated shipping containers, custom-designed industrial packaging and full-color point-of-purchase displays. The company adds value through an array of services in structural design, front-end creative design, just-in-time (JIT) inventory management, packout and fulfillment. Midland’s deep design and production capabilities allow it to serve customers in a wide range of industries, including consumer, industrial, and food and beverage businesses.
After acquiring Midland in 2008, operating partner Sieg Buck became CEO of the company. Since then, Arbor has invested to upgrade the company’s plant and equipment while leveraging its extensive network of contacts and portfolio company relationships to expand Midland’s customer base in the food industry. Under Arbor’s ownership, the company has obtained level I and II certifications from the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQF), further strengthening Midland’s position as a producer of high-quality food packaging. The company’s low leverage position maximizes balance sheet flexibility for add-on acquisitions. In early 2012, we expanded our packaging platform with the acquisition of Great Lakes Packaging Corp., another Wisconsin-based, value-added manufacturer of corrugated packaging and display products.
