In an injection molding deal, Mission Plastics Inc. has acquired NMH Marketing LLC and Andercraft de Mexico.
Andercraft de Mexico operates a 60,000-square-foot injection molding plant in Mexicali, Mexico. Officials with Mission — an injection molder in Ontario, Calif. — said the acquisition "reinforces [Mission's] market presence and significantly expands its capabilities as a trusted provider of injection molding solutions."
Mission President Robert Guy added the acquisition "aligns perfectly with our growth and succession strategies. … We remain committed to delivering exceptional quality and service to our customers while creating a new nearshore solution to help drive innovation and growth in the industry."
Mission was founded in 1982 and operates a 163,000-square-foot plant. In addition to custom molding, the firm offers engineering, mold design and precision tool making.
NMH was founded in Anaheim, Calif., in 1981 as Andercraft Products Inc. The firm later moved to California sites in Pomona and Rancho Cucamonga before opening the Mexicali plant in 1994. Andercraft was renamed NMH in 2006.
NMH then rebranded as Andercraft Manufacturing in April 2020.
Mission is owned by Patrick Dauphinee and Charles Montez, who are buying NMH/Andercraft from Bruce Anderson. No purchase price or annual sales data was disclosed.
The combined company will employ about 160 and operate 75 injection molding machines ranging from 7 tons to 720 tons. Of those machines, 44 will be under clean room conditions.
Major markets served by the combined firm are medical, automotive, commercial/industrial, consumer goods and irrigation. The combined firm will offer injection molding, device assembly and subassembly and part decoration.
NMH/Andercraft was represented in the deal by MBS Advisors of Florence, Mass.
