July 24, 2012 (Newswire.com) - Custom Index, Inc., a leading manufacturer of custom index tabs and file folders based in Totowa, N.J., has acquired Thompson Paper Products of Houston, Tex. The acquisition, announced by Custom Index CEO Nafees Rahman, expands the company's line of file folder products for its dealer network, which serves a multitude of industries (medical, automotive, schools, legal, manufacturing, and more). All operations will be incorporated into Custom Index's Totowa facility over the next few months.
"There is a lot of synergy between our two companies," said Rahman, "from the products we manufacture to our shared commitment to superior customer service, so this transaction makes good business sense for our firms and our customers." Rahman noted that Thompson Paper Products, established in 1961, has cultivated strong customer loyalty and relationships, just as Custom Index has done since its founding in 1982.
At a time when corporations are still growing slowly or holding off on major investments, Custom Index has bucked the trend under Rahman's leadership. A nationwide leader in the file folder, index tab, and label industry, the company continues to seek out opportunities to gain new markets and build its product line. Last November, Custom Index bought a former supplier, Color-Trac Labels, which made color-coded labeling systems; Custom Index now distributes all labels from its New Jersey factory.
"We continue to look ahead, to diversify and expand our product offerings and provide greater value to our dealers," he said. "As a leader in our industry, we are proving that manufacturing is alive and well in America."
Custom Index's dealers buy and distribute its index tabs, file folders, filebacks, copier tabs, legal dividers, and color labels throughout North America.
