In May, Milacron Holdings Corp. announced a definitive agreement to sell its Uniloy blow molding machinery business to Osgood Capital Group and Cyprium Investment Partners. Milacron’s sales in blow molding were approximately $90 million in 2018, down from around $95 million in 2017. The company stated, “The blow molding business has historically been difficult to forecast and has not met the profitability targets we aim to achieve.” The Uniloy structural-foam machinery business remains with Milacron, integrated with its injection molding business. The new Uniloy organization will be led by Brian Marston, president and CEO. He was president of blow molding and extrusion with Milacron. Osgood Capital president Joseph S. Levy, who had over 25 years’ experience in plastics and packaging, said, “We expect to deliver world-class service and solutions for all our customers’ blow molding needs as well as strong growth in global Uniloy brands for years to come.”
