El Cajon, Calif. – (Aug. 3, 2020) – First Class Packaging, Inc. (FCP) has been acquired by Larson Packaging Company of San Jose, Calif. The two companies have worked on this transaction since last year to enable the retirement of FCP founder Sandy Brock. The existing FCP team will remain in place and continue to operate under the new ownership of Larson Packaging Holdings, Inc., and will continue doing business under both the First Class Packaging and Larson Packaging Company names.
With the transaction, Larson Packaging Company can now effectively serve customers throughout California as well as globally through its partners.
“This is a great fit for both of us, especially because FCP shares our commitment to design, quality and customer service,” said Mark Hoffman, CEO of LPC. “Our customers demand high quality throughout their entire supply chain, including packaging. Together, we have an outstanding design team, share operational best practices, unify capabilities and product lines, and we create more value for our customers.”
Sandy Brock, founder and principal of FCP, will be retiring.
“I started this company over 30 years ago and we have grown and achieved success,” said Brock. “We have built a great management and operations team that consistently delivers value for our customers. I am confident that the team at Larson Packaging Company will continue to build upon our success.”
Brock will remain on staff for several months to help manage a smooth transition.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to acquire another packaging company that is so similar to our own in terms of product line, capabilities, culture and customer attention,” said Clementina Hoffman, President of Larson Packaging Holdings. “We will continue to maintain our status as a woman-owned and minority-owned business, which is important to our aerospace and government customers. The combined companies are leaders in custom crating, Pelican case inserts, ATA cases, fabricated foam assemblies and other custom industrial packaging.”
