AtCorr was established in 2010 as a family-operated business. Through the determination of Mike Jones and Kenny Whitworth, the company decided to make investments and expand. Jones and Whitworth then sold the company to current owners Chris Hills, Chris Roderick, Jarrod Beliles, and Paul Virg with the knowledge that they could expand the business further. Virg, Beliles, and Hills will continue to lead AtCorr, with Beliles operating as General Manager. The fourth owner, Chris Roderick, will retire from the business. The company has established a reputation for providing quality products and services to customers in Kentucky and its adjoining states. “We look forward to partnering with these strong industry veterans to serve and expand AtCorr’s customer base, as well as expand our cause with AtCorr’s associates” stated Scott Welch, President and CEO of Welch Packaging.
With operations in six states in the Midwest and Midsouth, this acquisition reinforces Welch’s commitment to serve new customers and provide a great associate experience. “We are excited to be under the Welch family umbrella. The way they give autonomy yet still support their businesses is unique in today’s business world, and we think that will be a big benefit to our customers. In addition, their existing network of sheet plants, complimented by their sheet feeders, will open opportunities we never had.” commented the owners of AtCorr, “The vision and culture of the Welch team is why we chose them. The passion with which Scott Welch leads is contagious and it brings excitement to what our plant can achieve.”
Specific terms of this agreement were not disclosed.
