Saegertown, Pa.-based Adler Industrial Solutions Inc. is rebranding its subsidiary Shorts Tool and Mfg. Inc. to Pinnacle Molds Inc.
Adler acquired Shorts in May 2021, and then added Rapid Mold Solutions Inc. of Erie, Pa., in October 2021 to it as part of a plan to build a network of companies with complementary capabilities in western Pennsylvania.
Founded in 2001, the rebranded subsidiary is a manufacturer of close-tolerance, multicavity plastic injection molds and ancillary products primarily for the medical, consumer goods, aerospace and industrial end markets.
The name change to Pinnacle better aligns the subsidiary with Adler's brand identity as a supplier of precision and tight-tolerance injection molds and mold components and it reflects the company's investments in improved machinery, tools, software and processes, according to Adler CEO Philipp Gruner.
"Pinnacle will retain its individuality yet benefit from Adler's resources and experience," Gruner said in a news release. "The new name and logo demonstrate that Pinnacle aspires to be the top supplier to its best customers within its categories of work."
The company's commitment to customers remains as strong as ever, Gruner added.
"The skilled staff at Pinnacle are excited to offer more to the customers they've been steadfastly serving for years," he said.
