Acquisition extends PJP's reach into the Mid-Atlantic region.

Penn Jersey Paper Company, Philadelphia, PA, has acquired Katcef Distributors, Annapolis, MD, a broad line distributor of foodservice supplies, equipment, disposables and janitorial products.

PJP will continue to operate out of the Katcef Distribution center, and take over operations of the Katcef cash and carry storefront.

“The acquisition of Katcef is an opportunity for us to strengthen our position as the region’s leading distributor of foodservice supplies,” said Tom Furia Jr., president and COO of PJP. “We are excited about extending our reach into the Mid-Atlantic region, and also becoming a part of the Annapolis community”

This will be PJP’s fourth acquisition in the last eight years, further strengthening the company’s distribution channels in its core market area.
