To recognize the collaborative nature and symbolic significance of this partnership, the Nolato Group and GW Plastics have announced a new logo featuring distinct branding elements from both companies. GW Plastics has subsequently rebranded to Nolato GW Inc.
With GW Plastics’ seven global manufacturing facilities joining Nolato’s 25+ facilities around the world, this acquisition gives Nolato and GW Plastics an impressive global position on the three key continents of North America, Asia, and Europe. Nolato’s acquisition of GW Plastics offers their customers expanded resources and capacity in the healthcare, filtration, and automotive markets.
This year marks GW Plastics’ 65th anniversary, and the company is proud to have grown from humble beginnings in Vermont to a thriving global enterprise operating from three continents. Headquartered in Bethel, Vermont, GW Plastics has over 1,000 employees at its manufacturing facilities in the US, Mexico, China, and Ireland. The company had been privately held, under the same ownership and leadership, since 1983 and the current management will remain with Nolato. The company has strong, longstanding customer relationships with a host of market leaders across the globe, especially in the medical device, diagnostics, drug delivery, and automotive industries.
“We believe Nolato aligns exceptionally well with GW Plastics’ business and culture, and together we’ll offer our customers the same predictability and engagement they have come to rely on,” said GW Plastics president and CEO Brenan Riehl. “Our customers will now be able to enjoy the support and scale of the entire Nolato Group with its comprehensive product development, engineering services, and extensive global manufacturing network. The combined capabilities and synergies between our companies are second to none and we look forward to leveraging them for our customers’ benefit.”
