The Real Reel Corporation

How We Got Started

Multi-Wall Packaging was founded as The Real Reel Corporation in 1922 by John C. Dunn, to manufacture cloth winding reels for the retail fabric industry. The company was located in East Providence, RI. Since 1982, as a third generation family business, the company put increased focus on aggressively growing the business. The Company’s growth strategy involved several acquisitions through the years and was eventually acquired by International Tool Works (ITW) in April, 2011. In February 2014 The Carlyle Group acquired ITW’s industrial packaging segments, which included Multi-Wall Packaging. In early 2018 Crown Holdings, Inc. finalized their acquisition with The Carlyle Group to purchase Signode Industrial Group and its subsidiaries, which included the Multi-Wall division.
