Brown Moskowitz & Kallen Represents A&R Bulk-Pak in Sale to NOVA Infrastructure

South Carolina-Based Packaging and Logistics Company for Petrochemical Industry Elevates Service to Global Chemical Industry through Acquisition by NOVA  

Chatham, New Jersey December 2023 — Brown Moskowitz & Kallen, P.C. (BMK) recently represented Moncks Corner, South Carolina-based A&R Bulk-Pak (A&R), a leading provider of contract packaging, transloading, warehousing and other vital supply chain services to the petrochemicals industry in its acquisition by NOVA Infrastructure, a middle market infrastructure investment firm that invests in the environmental services, transportation, energy/energy transition and communications sectors in North America.

Over the past decade, the Port of Charleston has evolved into one of the most active export hubs for the North American chemicals industry, with A&R among the leading suppliers of essential supply chain solutions. A&R operates a 240,000-square-foot warehouse at the port with two high-speed automatic packaging lines, rail access to the CSX main line and onsite storage for more than 120 railcars. The facility engages in transloading and packaging of polyethylene pellets for leading chemical producers and trading houses. The sale to NOVA enables A&R to accelerate its growth in serving global chemical providers.

As part of the acquisition by NOVA, A&R has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Harbor Logistics, a portfolio company within NOVA. Harbor provides transportation, logistics and warehousing services in Charleston. Harbor, A&R and NOVA are now long-term partners operating in concert to deliver comprehensive supply chain solutions throughout North America.

“The acquisition by NOVA and aligned agreement with Harbor Logistics offers significant strategic expansion opportunities to A&R,” said Norman D. Kallen, Partner and Co-Chair of the Brown Moskowitz & Kallen Commercial Transactions Group, who served as lead M&A counsel for A&R. “This transaction involved structuring several creative solutions that enable NOVA to leverage A&R’s dominant position at the Port of Charleston while providing a pathway for A&R to penetrate the global chemical industry marketplace and offer elevated supply chain solutions with NOVA-owned Harbor Logistics.”

Mr. Kallen was joined in the transaction by Justin Escher-Alpert, Senior Counsel of Brown Moskowitz & Kallen. A&R was advised by Michael Givner of IMG Business Advisors. Additional legal counsel was provided to A&R by Joshua Laff of The Law Office of Joshua F. Laff.

NOVA Infrastructure & Harbor Logistics were advised by Scudder Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. and Jones Day.
