(“CanGen”) consisting of subsidiaries Canterbury Engineering Company and Genca.

Milacron CEO Tom Goeke stated “CanGen fits perfectly with our core growth strategy of accelerating lifecycle sales through consumable products and aftermarket service. This acquisition brings a complementary product portfolio and customer base to Milacron, further building upon our fully integrated customer-driven solutions. Additionally, CanGen provides an entry into the extrusion market for rubber products, which opens up a new set of customers for Milacron’s existing product range.”

The consumables product market served by Canterbury and Genca includes screws & barrels, tooling and cross-heads, and other machined metal components. CanGen’s products are marked by substantial recurring revenues from the regular repair and replacement cycles of its large installed base.

We look forward to working with the Milacron team to continue building upon our available product offerings and value-add to our customers. This is a great fit for the future of our business and our employees.”
