Plastic shapes distributor Curbell Plastics Inc. has grown by acquiring Nationwide Plastics Inc. for an undisclosed price.
Arlington, Texas-based Nationwide is a full-service distributor with extensive plastic part fabrication and precision machining capabilities, officials with Curbell in Orchard Park, N.Y., said in an Aug. 26 news release.
They added that the deal will allow Curbell to expand into Texas and Mississippi and will strengthen the firm's shipping and fabrication capabilities at the national level.
Nationwide employs more than 50 at sites in Arlington, Houston and Jackson, Miss. Adding those sites now gives Curbell 22 locations.
For the immediate future, Nationwide will operate as a division of Curbell, officials said. Nationwide's extensive fabrication and machining services include CNC plastics machining and several types of plastics molding and processing.
Nationwide “was an excellent fit for Curbell because we share so much in common,” Curbell President Gerry Helbig said in the release. “Once we spent time with their team and saw how they operated, it was clear the Nationwide team shares our emphasis on providing timely service, plus the exceptional value that comes from deep industry expertise and technical application knowledge.”
