Milacron Invests in the U.S.
Milacron LLC , Cincinnatti, OH/USA, recently completed the acquisition of Industrial Machine Sales, Inc. (IMSI) and its sister company, Precise Plastics Machinery (PPM).
IMSI specializes in the application engineering of primary plastics processing and support systems for many operations, including injection molding, extrusion and blow molding. PPM was established in 1994 as a full service support company for the plastics industry, including offering pre-owned equipment and turnkey services.
Based in Southlake, Texas, both IMSI and PPM provide leading technology solutions for major manufacturers in the plastics industry located in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, New Mexico and the northern border of Mexico. IMSI and PPM’s staff will join the Milacron team and will continue to be based in Southlake at the current location. The location will serve as a High Impact Technical (H.I.T.) center in the region providing a full spectrum of plastics machinery support, including training and aftermarket parts and service.
Larry Burchett, the president and owner of IMSI and PPM, will serve as Vice President of Sales and General Manager of the Milacron Certified Pre-Owned Machinery division. Burchett offers 37 years of plastics manufacturing and leadership experience. He began his career at Milacron and assumed increasing levels of responsibility throughout his tenure. His purchase of IMSI in 1991 ended his direct employment at Milacron, but kept him connected through a 20-year agent association developed among IMSI, PPM and Milacron.
