Rocket Industrial Acquires Preferred Tape Inc

We expanded our national distribution network to Tulsa, Oklahoma, by acquiring Preferred Tape Inc. (PTI). This merger allows for both Rocket Industrial and PTI to better serve our clients’ needs and continue to help U.S. manufacturers package with less cost and less landfill waste.

Our President, Ryan Gallagher, stated, “On behalf of our family-owned company we are grateful for Renee Marshall-Carlozzi’s past leadership and are looking forward to continuing to honor the legacy of Scot Marshall’s creativity and vision to build PTI in his hometown of Tulsa. Since 1957, Rocket Industrial has continued to grow while focusing on customer service and innovation, hallmarks of PTI’s reputation. The PTI sales team, local warehousing, and shipping in Tulsa will all be continuing.”

As family-owned businesses, Rocket Industrial and PTI know the importance of being actively involved in the community. This merger allows us to provide more help and support to the communities that have helped our businesses grow.
