Selling an Injection Molding Company

If you have thoughts of selling your injection molding business (or any other plastic component manufacturing business), you’re facing a unique challenge. Outsourcing to low-cost countries, plastic resin price fluctuations, employee turnover and the volatile lending environment have all contributed to unsteady volumes and profits across the plastics processing and manufacturing sectors.

As a result, many injection molders, blow molders, thermoformers, profile extruders and other plastic/rubber component manufacturers are considering their options. Whether your company is in the midst of its best year or is struggling to generate profits, now may be the time to consider selling your business.

In other industries, the number of potential strategic buyers is limited. However, the plastics processing industry is still highly fragmented and the pool of strategic buyers for a typical injection molding company or other processor is virtually endless, regardless of the selling company’s performance.

We have vast M&A experience and an unmatched array of contacts in the injection molding and plastics processing industry. These tools allow us to maximize exposure to the large pool of strategic buyers and bring multiple interested parties to the table on behalf of our clients.

We have completed well over 70 M&A transactions in and around the plastics industry since our inception in 1998. A large majority of these deals  involved custom or proprietary injection molding companies. We have also successfully represented blow molders, thermoformers, compounders, equipment makers, prototypers and contract manufacturers. We work with molders and processors all over the world, with a primary focus on North America.
