Ongweoweh has announced that it has acquired White & Co., an independent packaging research and consulting firm. The purchase will better serve the needs of Ongweoweh’s customers, and provide White & Co. the opportunity to expand its service and software offerings.

The purchase of the packaging research and consulting firm, along with access to its proprietary software solutions Best Pallet and Best Load, fits into Ongweoweh’s strategy to shift the company to a focus on unit load optimization. The partnership between Ongweoweh and White & Co. delivers an outstanding combination of packaging expertise and operational know-how.

“The acquisition of White and Co. complements our overall unit load technology offering. It affords us the opportunity to provide our current and prospective customer with multiple solutions. This investment represents an opportunity to build upon the progressive ideals of my father,” said Danial F. Bonamie, president and CEO of Ongweoweh. “While White & Co. will continue to operate as an independent packaging research and consulting firm, we look forward to working alongside Dr. White and his team. Marketing and distribution of Best Pallet and Best Load will will be among our first priorities.”

“We are very excited about the opportunities for both Ongweoweh and White & Co., which will come from this partnership. I have long admired the successful vision of Frank, Dan, and everyone at Ongweoweh,” said Mark White, president of White & Co. “As an independent consulting and software development company, we look forward to bringing value to the customers and clients of both companies. This new partnership will allow White & Co. to expand its packaging and unit load design services and develop new software products for companies that manufacture and distribute consumer and industrial products.”
