Pacur To Buy PETG-Sheet Manufacturer Carolex

Pacur To Buy PETG-Sheet Manufacturer Carolex

News 19.11.2021

Pacur, LLC, a supplier of specialty plastic packaging materials for the medical device industry, announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire CAROLEX SAS, a polyethylene terephthalate glycol (“PETG”) sheet extruder based in France. The acquisition strengthens Pacur’s medical device focus in Europe and extrusion capabilities to meet the global demands of customers.

Pacur is the leading supplier of extruded PETG sheet used principally to provide rigid, high-performance packaging for medical devices. The company also produces sheet for certain specialty graphics, pharmaceutical packaging, and food packaging applications.

CAROLEX represents Pacur’s first acquisition and extends the company’s best-in-class customer service and reputation for quality into Europe. Oshkosh, WI-based Pacur is acquiring CAROLEX from epsotech Holding GmbH, a supplier of primarily thick gauge extruded plastic sheet with seven other factories in Europe. Pacur is a portfolio company of middle-market private equity firm Gryphon Investors, which invested in Pacur in 2020. Terms of the transaction, which is expected to close by year end, were not disclosed.

The CAROLEX management team will remain in place, led by Managing Director Sylvain Forestier.

John Carlson, CEO of Pacur said, “The past two years have certainly highlighted how important the entire medical supply chain has become, and has reinforced Pacur’s commitment to increasing our global presence. We are excited to join forces with Sylvain and the entire CAROLEX team and to develop a strong partnership in technology and customer satisfaction. We look forward to investing in Carolex and bringing Pacur’s market-leading capabilities in product innovation to Carolex’s European customers.”
