In 1928, Dixie purchased the Sani-Wax Paper Company Plant in Memphis, TN. Mr. Bryce became Vice President and General Manager of the new plant location.
As Bryce continued to grow the graphics design team branched out in the late 80’s and became Cyber Graphics.
This was out of Frito Lay’s effort to do business with minority-owned suppliers. That is when the Johnson family was introduced to the Bryce family and a joint venture began. Robert Johnson and his daughter Rhonda Johnson became history makers by leading the first minority-owned flexible packaging corporation. The idea was that a joint venture between a minority entrepreneur and an established company would result in a stable company that could start up quickly.
In 2007, the Purifoy Family acquired a majority of ownership of Johnson Bryce which is now run by CEO Ron Purifoy. Johnson Bryce remains a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE).
Mr. Bryce is now joined by his sons-in-law, Sean Bowie and Stephen Perkins, who are positioned to drive Bryce Corporation into its next phase of growth. Intimately involved with the day-to-day operations of the business, both Bowie and Perkins are committed to the growth of the business while still maintaining Bryce Corporation’s long-standing tradition of innovation in flexible packaging.
