Bpdi Corp. was originally founded as Appleton News Agency and has been an institution in the Fox Valley since 1954. We began as a wholesale distribution business that distributed newspapers, magazines, and books. In the 1960’s, the Appleton News Agency began expanding and acquired similar firms in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our company name changed to Badger Periodical Distributors Inc. in the mid 1970’s. During the 1980’s, ownership was passed down to the children of the founder and in the 2000’s, the third generation joined the organization.
In 1996, our company’s name was changed to bpdi Corp. and moved to its present location in Appleton, Wisconsin.
