Case Study View Details


In 2008, Sand Oak Capital Partners was introduced to the company through a local relationship. The acquisition was completed as a negotiated transaction.


The company had an experienced, highly-skilled labor force capable of designing and producing value-added components with an attractive portfolio of long-standing customers. However, under family ownership, Thermold lacked sufficient access to resources with which to grow its business. This was quickly remedied by capital investment and additional strategic oversight.


Sand Oak identified a demand in the market for highly engineered, low volume products that could not be efficiently produced overseas. Thermold continues to win new business by developing new ideas for customers, deepening already strong relationships and creating a brand name for quality, highly-engineered injection molding products.
