Novvia Group, a packaging distributor backed by Kelso & Company, has acquired Duval Container Company, a distributor of packaging products.

Duval operates out of two warehouses and has customers across the chemical and agriculture industries.

“As foreshadowed in the Southern Container announcement, we are bullish on the Southeast market and are delighted to add Duval to help Novvia expand our position in this key geography,” said Ken Roessler, executive chairman of Novvia.
