Terms weren’t disclosed for the deal, which is BradyPlus’ second of the year, following U.S. Northeast-based EcoIndustrial in early April.

“The acquisition of iPAK enables us to scale a priority geography and to expand our industrial packaging capabilities,” BradyPlus CEO and Chairman Ken Sweder said in a June 12 news release. “This partnership also will bring us additional reach, product depth and support across an important and growing category. I look forward to working with the strong and dedicated team at iPAK.”

BradyPLUS rebranded after the fall 2023 merger of BradyIFS and Envoy Solutions, which formed distributor with nearly $5 billion in annual revenue. The newly-combined company has nearly 6,000 employees acros 180 locations and more than 100,000 branded and exclusive brand products.

Sweder joined the MDM Podcast in December 2023 to discuss the combination and the company’s path forward.
