Milacron Acquires Kortec

Plastics Business

Milacron LLC, a global provider of high-precision plastics processing technologies, has acquired Kortec, a supplier of co-injection technology solutions to the packaging industry.

Customers will have the flexibility to purchase a fully integrated Kortec system, or choose to add a retrofit co-injection melt distribution and control module to their existing injection molding equipment. Both of these options can transform operations from mono-layer manufacturing processes to complete co-injection molding lines. Injection molded barrier packaging has seen significant growth in the last five years to replace cans, tin, glass and thermoforming in markets such as shelf-stable thin wall packaging, beverage packaging, pet foods, single serve coffee and medical parts.
