“We are excited to welcome Northern Plastics into the National Composites family,” said Adam Fenton, CEO of National Composites. “This acquisition strategically increases our capacity and capability within the thermo/vacuumform plastic market, providing our customers with a one-stop shop solution, even beyond composites.”

The acquisition is complementary to National Composites’ existing expertise in composites and metals.

“Thermoform plastics is a great complement to our current offering. Although thermoforming is a core competency of ours, the addition of Northern Plastics is just the first of many planned expansions into the thermoplastics space,” added Fenton.
