Gemini Industries Acquires TKCups-Sorg's
Gemini Industries, Roxana, Ill., announced that it has acquired TKCups-Sorg's, a supplier of custom printed napkins, plates, coffee sleeves, coasters, cups and more.
Founded in 1996, TKCups-Sorg's has specialized in both paper and plastic food service products, and has introduced environmentally-friendly product lines. Through the acquisition, Gemini will expand its promotional product offering with a wide range of food service products in line with Gemini's commitment to U.S. manufacturing.
"We are excited to expand our portfolio of promotional products and services with the addition of the TKCups-Sorg's industry-leading products," Steve Ehlert, general manager for Gemini, said in a press release.

Ehlert added that TKCups-Sorg's would continue manufacturing its products in New England.
"I am very pleased to partner with Gemini," Karen Laufer, former owner and president of TKCups-Sorg's, said. "I found that they share our commitment to delivering exceptional products to our customers, of the highest quality, on time and at a reasonable price. I'm confident that their stewardship of TKCups-Sorg's will allow us to continue to exceed the expectations of our customers across the United States and internationally. Our customers will benefit from a larger partner with a wider array of products, and our employees will continue to enjoy working for a growing leader in the promotional products industry."
