Jay Kumar, President of Universal Plastics Group, stated “W. Kintz Plastics’ 40-year history of expertise in high quality thermoformed parts and focus on excellent customer service in key industries ranging from transportation to medical devices, is highly synergistic to our thermoforming division and our broader manufacturing capabilities, including injection molding and blow molding. As always, customer success remains our top priority and guiding focus. With this acquisition, we will further build upon the breadth and depth of value we provide to our customers.”
