Johnson Plastics Acquires Zak Plastics


Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Johnson Plastics announces that it has acquired Zak Plastics of Stoughton, Massachusetts, in a deal that closed Oct. 27.

Terms of the deal were not announced.

Johnson Plastics is a leading distributor of materials and supplies for the engraving and sublimation industries. Spokesman Kevin Sheehy says it’s been some time since Johnson Plastics acquired another company.

“There was a time when we were actively acquiring (other companies), … but it’s been a while,” Sheehy says.

Talks with Zak Plastics’ founder, Ken Zak, had been in the works for many months. Sheehy adds.

Johnson Plastics’ president, Mike Johnson, calls Zak in a press statement “a respected businessman who has served his customers well for over 20 years.” Johnson also notes that customers should count on the same commitment to service from his company.

Zak Plastics’ customers, who have already been notified of the sale, will be served out of Johnson Plastics’ distribution facility in Albany, New York.

That site, located at 1 Selina Drive, opened Oct. 1 and is designed to serve the state of New York and most of the northeast with overnight UPS delivery.
