Material Motion, Inc., a leader in packaging solutions, has officially purchased The Manchester Company, a Michigan based company. Manchester is one of our leading competitors in the Midwest Region and is very strong in the seed/feed and bean industry. Material Motion's acquisition of Manchester expands its reach into this region and allows Material Motion to sell its larger product base horizontally into their market.
We believe Manchester’s strong team and our commitment to service, growth, and quality will make the blending of these two companies a win for our customers and for our team.
The Manchester product line is designed to meet the demands of the feed/seed and bean industry. Their product offerings include: Paper bags, Woven bags, Jute bags, Cloth bags, PE bags and Mesh/Leno bags.
“Manchester and Material Motion have had a buy/sell relationship for almost 10 years. We are very excited to finally bring the two companies together and see how we can not only maintain Manchester’s commitment to their customers but to also expand their offerings and help their customers lower their overall packaging spend” -Steve Schneider, President of Material Motion.
Material Motion, Inc. is a global packaging and environmental solutions company based out of Atlanta Georgia. Material Motion was founded in 1992 as an Industrial Packaging Company. Over the past 20 years we have had tremendous growth both in revenue and product offerings.
As of January 1st 2017, Material Motion, Inc. is a fully owned employee business (ESOP – Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Companies with ESOPs and other broad-based employee ownership plans account for well over half of Fortune Magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work for in America" list year after year.
