Curbell Plastics Inc. has grown again, by acquiring the plastics business of Great Lakes Plastic Co. Inc. in Buffalo, N.Y.
A sales rep from Great Lakes Plastic will join Curbell, a shapes distributor based in neighboring Orchard Park. In a Nov. 1 news release, regional director Jeff Burke said that the addition of the Great Lakes Plastics business "will enhance our existing Western New York accounts, strengthening our local presence."
"We are confident we can service our new customers at an even higher level than before by offering additional resources, materials, and technical expertise," he added.
Curbell now has made seven acquisitions in the last seven years, including two in 2019. In August, Curbell acquired Nationwide Plastics Inc., a full-service distributor with extensive plastic part fabrication and precision machining capabilities based in Arlington, Texas.
Curbell, founded in 1942, supplies performance plastic sheet, rod, tube, film, adhesives, sealants and prototyping materials for manufacturing to thousands of businesses, entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 companies and government agencies.
