TricorBraun operates from more than 50 locations globally.

WHY: With the acquisition, TricorBraun will continue to strategically invest in Quebec, a market the company has serviced for more than 25 years thoroughly locally stocked inventory, dedicated team members, and products manufactured by local supplier partners.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “Our acquisition of RODA Packaging continues our long track record of growth in Canada,” said Court Carruthers, president and CEO, TricorBraun. “We are very impressed by the strong company Stéphan Berthiaume and his team have built, and with our combined expertise we will service the needs of Quebec-based businesses, along with the customers we support across North America.

Our shared focus on customer service, quality and operational excellence, along with TricorBraun’s broader supplier base and multiple locations, will allow RODA to explore its full potential and offer a more complete range of services to our customers.”
