Ritchie & Page Distribution Company Incorporated
Ritchie & Page Distributing Co., Inc. is a licensed beverage distributor in the United States, focusing in New Jersey and the counties of Mercer, Monmouth, Burlington, Ocean and Hunterdon. The company was founded in 1963 and is based in Robbinsville, New Jersey. We distribute the entire line of Anheuser Busch, Heineken USA , Diageo Beer Company and Mikes products, along with many specialty and craft beers. After the United States repealed Prohibition in the 21st Amendment, the government established the three-tiered system to distribute beer throughout the country. The system calls for distribution companies like Ritchie & Page to buy beer from breweries, in cases and kegs and then sell them to retail customers such as liquor stores, restaurants and bars.
Ritchie & Page Distributing Company has been in the Natale family since 1963, when Lou Natale, Jr. and his brother-in-law bought the company from its founders, Mr. Ritchie and Mr. Page, both well-known Trenton Businessmen and political leaders. Chris Natale, current president of Ritchie & Page joined the company in 1997 and moved the business from Trenton to Robbinsville in 2011 after acquiring Crown Beer Distributors. Today, Natale co-owns the business with his wife Michele, brother Lou Natale III and sister Jo Natale Cameron. In 2014 Emma Natale granddaughter of the founder joined the company and now holds the position of Director of Marketing and Communications.
Ritchie & Page celebrated 50 years of business in Trenton in 2013, but the owners knew they couldn’t afford to be sentimental. After the purchase of Crown Beer in 2011, the decision was made to move the beer distributor into a new, 150,000-square foot warehouse in Robbinsville. The acquisition more than doubled Ritchie & Page’s customer base and volume, as nearly half of their 1,600 clients are now located in Monmouth and Ocean County. The original territory consisted of southern Hunterdon, Mercer and Burlington counties. In early 2014, the company added an additional 30,000 square feet to the warehouse due to further brand acquisitions and internal growth.
Finally, the company is and has always been active in the community. We regularly participate and contribute to many civic, social, and charitable projects. We strongly believe that contributing to the well-being of our community is vital to the future success and growth of Ritchie & Page.
