Pexco Completes Fourth Acquisition of the Year, Acquires RDC Cytex of Houston, Texas

ATLANTA (December 2, 2011) -- Pexco LLC, a leading North American extruder for custom thermoplastic applications, has acquired RDC Cytex, Inc. of Houston. RDC Cytex is a custom profile extruder specializing in retail point-of-purchase display fixtures. Following its acquisition of AllWest Plastics in July, this deal is the fourth acquisition for Pexco in 2011 and its largest to date.

Neil Shillingford, Pexco CEO, remarks, "Cytex is an impressive organization with strong customer relationships in one of the largest segments for profile extrusions. We are excited about broadening our base for this consistent application as well as establishing a strategic presence in Texas for other growing extrusion markets.” Pexco itself currently offers retailers and corporate brands a variety of merchandising products and custom extruded solutions that are marketed under the AisleSmart name.

RDC Cytex was founded in 1990 by David Burg, the seller, and has since become a leader in thermoplastic profile extrusions for retail merchandising. RDC Cytex supplies some of North America’s largest retailers with in-stock and custom extruded shelving display accessories, including sign boards, shelf strip holders, and banner hangers. The company employs over 70 individuals in Houston and Evansville, Indiana. Its Houston manufacturing facility features a 122,000 square foot manufacturing space with 20 extrusion lines, processing resins such as butyrate, styrene, and PVC.

Pexco has had an active year in both organic and acquisitive terms, with previous acquisitions addressing fence, consumer products, medical, commercial lighting fixtures, and aerospace market segments. The company remains committed to an aggressive growth plan and driving the market for new and current profile extrusion applications.
