New Injection Molding Group Emerges

Westfall Technik to expand organically and through acquisition.

A newly formed holding company founded by former Nypro CEO Brian Jones has purchased two injection molding companies in what it calls “the first steps in the realization of a vision to build a market-leading group of plastics experts whose combined synergies and integrated network provides optimum engineered solutions throughout the plastics manufacturing process.”

Jones’ firm, Westfall Technik Inc. in late October bought Fairway Injection Molds Inc., Walnut, Calif.; and Integrity Mold Inc., Tempe, Az. Both companies offer “premier customers and are committed to uncompromising operational excellence and customer service in their fields,” the company said in a release.
