Piedmont Plastics Acquires Two New England Plastics Companies


Charlotte, North Carolina-based Piedmont Plastics, a wholesale distributor of plastic sheet, rod, tube and film stock shapes, announces its expansion in the New England marketplace with the acquisition of Mechanical Plastics Inc. and Plastic Supply Inc. The former is located in Agawam, Massachusetts and the latter in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

These new locations mark the 46th and 47th distribution centers in North America for Piedmont Plastics, and there are four locations that serve New England and the northeastern U.S.

All the employees from the two companies will be joining Piedmont Plastics, as will John Murphy, who owned them both.

“We are extremely excited to have the Plastic Supply Inc. and Mechanical Plastics Inc. families join ours,” says Tyler Booth, president of Piedmont Plastics. “The culture that John has created within and between his two companies will prove to be a fantastic fit and we look forward to building upon their internal capabilities and growing in two important geographies in New England.”

“We are thrilled to be joining the Piedmont family,” adds Murphy. “Their company philosophy and values mesh perfectly with ours, making this a win-win. However, the big winners will be our customers and employees as we continue to grow and thrive in the region.”
