GREENSBORO, NC (January, 2021) – CGR Products, a fabricator of flexible materials with a 57-year history of providing customized solutions to the manufacturing industry, has acquired Minnesota-based tape converter Custom Tape Company, it was announced today.
The acquisition was announced jointly by Chuck Keeley, President, CGR Products; and Jeff Gilberg, President, Custom Tape Company. The combined company will employ more than 140 employees in four states, expanding the ability for CGR Products to meet the demands of customers who require precision fabricated products and quick turnaround times.
“Growth through acquisition has been a key component of our strategic plan and is an important initiative to assure our long-term success and to provide additional growth opportunities for our associates,” said Keeley. “I am really excited about this new partnership.
