SHEBOYGAN, WIS. (Jan. 11, 10:30 a.m. ET) — Vollrath Co. Inc. has acquired acrylic product manufacturer Acry Fab Inc. of Sun Prairie, Wis., according to mergers and acquisition adviser Generational Equity LLC.

Acry Fab was started about 30 years ago. The company designs and thermoforms food-accessory dispensing items, mainly for convenience stores. Among its product lines are the Lid Saver Lid Dispenser; bakery cases; countertop, in-counter and self-serve dispensers; as well as organizers, holders and accessories.

The company also makes customized plastic items such as laboratory equipment, medical equipment accessories and parts for OEMs.

The deal closed Dec. 20. Terms were not disclosed.

Vollrath, which is headquartered in Sheboygan, has been manufacturing equipment and small-wares supplies for prepping and cooking food for 137 years.

The company said it will continue to make acrylic products at the Sun Prairie facility.

The deal is Vollrath’s second for a plastics company. It acquired injection molder Traex Co. of Dane, Wis., in April 2011.

Generational Equity is a Dallas-based adviser for middle-market businesses.
