Novvia Group represents the combination of several leading companies focused on the distribution of industrial and life sciences rigid container packaging.
Initially, the packaging platform consisted of two leading distributors—Inmark and C.L. Smith, offering life sciences, hazmat and industrial packaging solutions. Harvey & Company was engaged by Novvia and their private equity sponsor in February 2021 and initiated the May 2021 acquisition of Silver Spur Corporation, a supplier of specialty glass and plastic packaging for nutraceutical and pharmaceutical applications. Harvey & Company co-invested alongside the lead private equity sponsor in the Novvia platform at this time.
Novvia has continued to execute a thoughtful organic and inorganic growth strategy, completing eight acquisitions in only 14 months, resulting in a differentiated value proposition to a diverse customer base across a variety of end-markets. Through its family of dynamic companies, comprised of Inmark, C.L. Smith, Silver Spur, Container Supply, Fox Valley, Acepac Shanghai, Rhino, and Andicor Container Distribution, Novvia has set a new industry standard as a national stocking distributor with a comprehensive suite of containers and supplies, trusted local relationships and 40+ years of best-in-class customer service.
Novvia has quickly established itself as the platform of choice in the packaging distribution market, with a significant North American footprint with domestic and international customers across a myriad of industries. Given Novvia’s success in the highly fragmented packaging distribution industry, we are enthusiastic about continuing the add-on acquisition strategy with Novvia.
