Revere Plastics Systems, a leading manufacturer of highly engineered plastic injection molded parts and assemblies based in Novi, has acquired Kansas-based Ferguson Production Inc., which operated 36 injection molding presses. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The presses at Ferguson’s McPherson, Kansas facility range from 55 tons to 1,750 tons, and assembly and secondary operation machines give the 66,000 square foot plant the ability to serve a variety of industries, including agriculture, automotive, consumer, lawn and garden, and recreational vehicles.
The company also owns an 80,000 square foot warehouse which is used as a distribution center.
“We are extremely excited to add Ferguson as our fourth acquisition and our fifth new facility over the last 2.5 years,” says Glen Fish, CEO of Revere. “Ferguson is a great company with a history of impressive growth, a strong management team, and many capabilities that complement Revere’s existing portfolio. As part of our continued growth and diversification strategy, we are thrilled to have another facility in a new geographic region with new end markets and robust customers.”
The acquisition follows the purchase of Ferguson’s first manufacturing facility in Mexico six months ago.
“We are very proud of the business we have built since my father, Norlan Ferguson, founded the company in 1974 and since I purchased it in 2011,” says Scott Ferguson, president of Ferguson. “Our team has been able to grow the company and, with the resources that Revere brings to the table, we will continue this growth while delivering for our customers and stakeholders.”
Revere employs more than 1,000 people in its manufacturing, technical, and sales facilities. Along with its Novi headquarters Revere operates 9 manufacturing facilities, including Auburn, Alabama; Fraser, Michigan; Jeffersonville, Indiana; Ankeny, Iowa; McPherson, Kansas; Saltillo, Mexico; Poplar Bluff, Missouri; Clyde, Ohio; and Brampton, Ontario.
