MARKHAM, ONTARIO (Jan. 15, 4 p.m. ET) — Extrusion die producer Exco Technologies Ltd. has extended its geographic reach by acquiring BE&H Extrusion Dies Inc. of Wylie, Texas.

Exco said it paid about $1.5 million in cash for the company. The deal gives Exco an experienced workforce and a stronger presence in markets where proximity to customers is important. The deal will boost Exco’s extrusion group sales by about 5 percent, a level which should grow in coming years, the Markham, Ontario, firm said in a Jan. 14 news release.

Exco has been serving the North American extrusion tooling market from Markham and a plant in Chesterfield, Mich. The Texas acquisition, which will be renamed Exco Texas, expands Exco’s stake in the south-central region of the United States and will provide capacity the company needs to meet resurgent demand for extrusion dies as the U.S. economic recovery gains momentum.

Exco employs 2,213 at 11 locations around the globe that supply the die-cast, extrusion and automotive industries.
