Aurora Merges with Enviroplas
Aurora Plastics, LLC, a leading manufacturer of polymer compounds, announced its merger with Enviroplas Inc. (“Enviroplas”), an engineering compounding business with more than 30 years of growth history, in partnership with Enviroplas management. Sharing a commitment to being their customers’ first choice, Aurora Plastics and Enviroplas can now offer customers a broader product portfolio backed by industry-leading customer service. The move represents the company’s launch of an engineered polymers business segment. “Enviroplas brings an exciting platform expansion in a near-product adjacency with meaningful synergies,” says Darrell Hughes, chief executive officer of Aurora Plastics.

Jim Stratman, founder and chief executive officer of Enviroplas, will remain a substantial shareholder and continue to lead the growth as president of Enviroplas, the engineered polymers business of Aurora Plastics, reporting to Hughes. Enviroplas’ leadership team and employee base will continue in their current roles.

Enviroplas was founded by Jim Stratman in 1992 and operates out of two sites in Evansville, IN. “There are tremendous cultural similarities between Aurora Plastics and Enviroplas,” says Stratman. “Most important of these is the focus on customer intimacy and partnership, enabling the continued growth of Aurora’s engineered compounds and vinyl specialties businesses.”

The combined company offers a broad range of custom compounding capabilities and technologies, including: engineered polymers; PVC compounds; thermoplastic elastomers; and other specialty compounds.

“Aurora is a great company and was an outstanding choice to build on Enviroplas’ legacy of providing toptier innovation, strong customer service, and leading product quality. Partnering with Aurora allows an immediate scaled platform for our products, with growth accelerators in process, people, and technology. These are exciting times,” says Stratman.
