Rusken Expands Footprint: Knoxville, TN
Rusken Packaging (“Rusken”) is pleased to announce the completed acquisition of a small sheet plant out of Knoxville, TN. This acquisition is effective as of July 1, 2022. Regarding the new addition, Randy Whiteaker, Rusken COO, had this to say:
“It gives me great pleasure to announce that we now have manufacturing capability in Knoxville, Tennessee. As you may, or may not, know we have had assembly and warehousing in Knoxville for some time. With the acquisition of a small sheet plant, we have now added a second location and are working toward a full manufacturing production schedule in the near future.”
Rusken’s growth in East Tennessee will be led by Rusken’s Susan Brackett as Knoxville Site Manager and Jason Warner as Operations Manager.
