Pacur Expands into Europe with Acquisition of Polymer Extruder Carolex
November 17, 2021

US-based Pacur LLC, a supplier of specialty plastic packaging materials for the medical device industry, is expanding its presence into Europe with the acquisition of France-based Carolex SAS for an undisclosed sum.

Carolex, a Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG) sheet extruder, is being acquired from epsotech Holding GmbH, a supplier of primarily thick gauge extruded plastic sheet with 7 other factories in Europe.

Carolex is also the first acquisition for Pacur, which says will help strengthen its medical device focus in Europe and extrusion capabilities to meet global demand.

The transaction is expected to close by year-end, and the Carolex management team will remain in place, led by Managing Director Sylvain Forestier.
