McClarin acquires composites company

McClarin Plastics, a manufacturer of thermoformed plastic, glass fiber reinforced plastic and composite products has acquired Custom Composites, an Oklahoma-based manufacturer of polypropylene and composite glass fiber products including tanks, grating, fire apparatus and custom parts.

The move adds strategy value to McClarin, which already maintains facilities in the Pacific Northwest, Northeast, and Southeast United States. The company plans to invest additional capital into Custom Composite's new 83,000 ft2 production facility. McClarin will continue to service Custom Composites existing customers and plans to move additional business to the location. McClarin expects to add over 50 additional jobs at the facility over the next several years.
