Kohlberg & Company Closes Pexco Acquisition, Announces New Merged Entity, Spectrum Plastics Group
Increases breadth and depth of plastic and material solutions primarily for the medical device market
ALPHARETTA, GA (May 9, 2017) – Kohlberg & Company, L.L.C. (“Kohlberg”), a leading private equity firm specializing in middle-market investing, has announced that it has closed the acquisition of Pexco and successfully merged the business with PPC Industries, Inc. (“PPC”), a Kohlberg portfolio business which also comprises Kelpac Medical.
The new entity will be named Spectrum Plastics Group, underscoring the wide and comprehensive range of plastic and material solutions it is now able to bring to market, most notably for the medical device sector. Spectrum Plastics Group will feature multiple thermoplastic and silicone tubing extrusion, injection molding, film, packaging, assembly and value- add manufacturing technologies across 20 plants, five countries, and three continents, comprising more than 2,000 employees.
Neil Shillingford, chief executive officer of Spectrum Plastics Group, comments, “We are thrilled to have closed this transaction and to announce the launch of our new, combined company, Spectrum Plastics Group. There are few businesses as unique and well-resourced as Spectrum Plastics Group in the market today, and we aim to support our customers fully with such a broad range of manufacturing technologies and products.”
The formation of Spectrum Plastics Group creates a more comprehensive suite of medical solutions under one provider by combining the related capabilities previously under Pexco Medical and Kelpac Medical. The medical business will consist of 15 manufacturing facilities across the globe and feature both thermoplastic and silicone technologies. Both Pexco and PPC Industries, however, will retain their industrial brands and marks for industrial profile extrusion and industrial packaging businesses respectively.
The Spectrum Plastics Group name belonged to the Pexco portfolio of brands as a result of its acquisition of the Minneapolis-based precision injection molder in 2013. It is relaunching with a new mark and logo.
Commenting on this new name and brand for the entire operating unit, Mauricio Arellano, president of the medical division, indicates that it fits the proposition perfectly. “We now bring a full spectrum and in most cases unmatched set of specialty plastics capabilities to the medical device sector, so the opportunity to relaunch our brand, one with a long history in medical devices and strong brand equity with our customers, was compelling. It speaks precisely to our unique position within the medical device market and our ability to support our customers’ noble mission of restoring health for millions of patients worldwide”
Roger Prevot, operating partner at Kohlberg and chairman of Spectrum Plastics Group, remarked, “Since Kohlberg’s acquisition of PPC in 2014, our goal has been to build a broadly diversified medical componentry leader. The combination of Pexco with PPC represents the ideal next step in our achievement of this vision.”
The brand will formally launch at the Medical Design and Manufacturing trade fair (MD&M East) in New York later next month, providing customers the opportunity to interact with the new business and its full- range offering

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Spectrum Plastics Group, a global solutions provider for development through scaled manufacturing of critical polymer-based components and devices for medical and other demanding markets, is excited to announce a significant renovation and cleanroom expansion project at its Minneapolis, MN facility.
The 105,000 square foot facility is increasing the size of the Class 8 cleanroom manufacturing space to a total of 10,000 square feet, investing in additional molding machine capacity, renovating the office and employee amenity space, and further updating the facility to reflect the modern state of the art and highly technical molding services we provide our customers. Paul Schmeling – Sr. VP of Specialty Molding said of the expansion, "Spectrum has been quietly investing in this market segment by adding 15 new molding machines over the last 3 years. This cleanroom expansion furthers that commitment with the purchase and installation of another 10 molding machines over the balance of this year and next." A majority of that capacity will be in 110 ton and less injection molding machines, representing our focus on high precision, small and micro-molded parts serving the medical and defense industries.
The new Class 8 cleanroom will be a purpose-built molding and assembly cleanroom designed to manage the special challenges of cleanroom molding. The drying of materials and all process utilities reside outside of the cleanroom and enter the cleanroom at the press. Special utilities including high purity nitrogen and oil-free compressed air service our medical device molding and reduce risk of contamination. Real-time data capture, process quality monitoring, and RJG in cavity pressure monitoring capabilities are incorporated in the infrastructure of the new cleanroom. The office renovations include collaborative workspaces which will allow our quality and engineering teams to work more closely with customers on concepts, design for manufacturability (DFM), mold designs, and other manufacturing solutions. The completion of the entire expansion project is expected by November 2021.
