Specialty compounder Peak Performance Compounding Inc. opened its doors in September in Leominster, Mass.
Peak offers pre-colored, high-quality compounds to several markets, including medical and industrial, President Todd Marchand said in a news release. The new firm "believes in treating customers with integrity and best-in-class service; prioritized with reasonable lead time and uncompromised quality," he added. "Fast turnaround of samples and no minimum order size is our mantra."
Peak offers twin-screw technology for processing a wide range of resins, compounds and filled materials. The eight-employee company can offer custom formulating, custom coloring and toll processing with customer-specified ingredients.
"We're application-driven for a wide range of businesses," Marchand said in a recent telephone interview. "And we're focused on higher-end applications."
Peak also offers pellet or dry powder blending, pellet pulverizing and material testing. Officials said the owners launched the company to offer a service-oriented option for companies looking to fill their compounding requirements.
Peak's owners include industry veterans Marchand, Robert Tocci Jr., Michael Carota and Jonas Angus. Marchand, Tocci Jr. and Carota also have ownership stakes in Aaron Industries, a recycled resin compounder also located in Leominster.
