Acquiring a Plastic Molding Company

At MBS, we talk to over a thousand injection molders, processors and component makers each year, and if there is one recurring theme in our discussions it is this: organic growth as a custom molder or manufacturer is extremely difficult.

Finding new customers or entering new markets is the goal of most molders and processors, but this is easier said than done. The solution for many companies: growth through acquisition.

If you are interested in acquiring an injection molding company or other plastic processing business, we can help. Whether it is the custom injection molder down the road, an LSR molder on the West Coast, a blow molder in another part of the country or a struggling owner's book of business, our plastic molding industry knowledge and comprehensive database of plastic processors allow us to perform searches tailored to your criteria.

Buy-side M&A projects represent less than 20% of our business, but we still typically complete between one and three buy-side engagements each year.

Our buy-side M&A proposals usually have four parts: search, solicitation, analysis and negotiation. We have the flexibility to be as involved or absent from any of these four parts as you wish.

Call us at 413.584.2899, and we will discuss how we can help you implement an acquisition plan and acquire a molding company.


Is Shipping Becoming a Problem?  Need a New Location?

High shipping costs are beginning to bring business back from Asia, but OE manufacturers are increasingly looking for a local source.  As a processor, if you are located hundreds of miles away from your customer base, you have probably thought about a second facility.

We can help you find another plant with the right characteristics at the right price. More »
