Plastics, Colorants, and Additives

The global plastics and plastics additives industry is large and diverse, with products ranging from commodity plastic resins and compounds to additives, colorants, specialty films, and packaging materials. Strategic acquirers view M&A as an opportunity to diversify their product offerings, gain access to new markets and geographies, and achieve scale. Private equity buyers are attracted to the industry’s cash-flow profile and the ability to execute a roll-up strategy. 

Grace Matthews has worked with companies throughout the plastics value chain, including basic chemical manufacturers, polymer and resin suppliers, compounders, extruders, and manufacturers of specialty additives and colorants. We have executed on plastics additives mergers and acquisitions and addressed a variety of complex business needs in this market segment. We have a deep understanding of the dynamic raw materials markets that impact costs and margins and the end markets that drive underlying demand. Importantly, for more than 20 years, we have built strong relationships with global industry-leading clients that can rely on our experience to navigate intricate transactional issues.
