LAKEVILLE, MA (November 20, 2017) – Bay State Specialty announces the acquisition of Americanna Line, an industry supplier, specializing in rubber, vinyl, recycled, and cork products. Americanna, based in Plymouth, MA has been a family-owned promotional products company providing top quality products and service for over 30 years. The Americanna Line will continue to operate under it’s own name as a division of Bay State Specialty Company. Americanna’s corporate offices, manufacturing and shipping operations, including all employees, will eventually move to Bay State’s Lakeville facility to streamline processes, but for now, Americanna will continue to operate from its Plymouth location and distributors should see no disruption in service.
Michael Moore, President of Bay State stated, “We have been friendly competitors with Americanna for years and have always had a keen interest in the well-run company. We jumped at the opportunity when presented to us. We are excited to be able to continue the family business tradition of Americanna with this acquisition.” Moore went on to say, “Americanna has been successful on it’s own for more than three decades and we don’t want to disrupt that. We are very fortunate that all current employees have been retained, and will continue to provide the quality, speed, and excellent customer service Americanna’s customers have counted on for over 30 years. As a family run business of more than 60 years ourselves, we are thrilled that our family continues to grow.”
