Nordstjernan’s wholly owned subsidiary Rosti has acquired 100 percent of the shares in the US company Plastic Components, Inc. (“PCI”). The acquisition of PCI strengthens Rosti’s global position in plastic injection molding and creates a platform for continued growth in North America.

Rosti develops and manufactures injection-molded plastic components. The company’s offering includes container closures and lids for the food industry as well as manufacturing of components and complete products for selected consumer and industrial sectors. The company has manufacturing operations in China, Malaysia, Poland, Romania, the UK, Sweden, Turkey and Germany. Rosti had sales of approximately EUR 323 million in 2020.


PCI offers plastic injection molding in North America, with long-standing business relationships with a diverse customer base. The company – which boasts a high degree of innovation, with state-of-the-art production facilities in Germantown, Wisconsin, Clearfield, Utah and Cary, North Carolina – was sold by MPE Partners and a number of minority investors. The parties have agreed keep the full terms and conditions of the transaction confidential.


“Through the acquisition of PCI, Rosti is establishing a global footprint in plastic injection molding. This add-on acquisition is aligned with Nordstjernan’s focus on building leading international industrial companies,” says Nordstjernan’s CEO Peter Hofvenstam.


“M&A is an important part of Rosti’s growth strategy. We actively look for high-quality companies that can add new areas of expertise, geographic markets and customer segments. Through the acquisition of PCI, we are broadening Rosti’s customer base and creating an important platform for continued growth in the US. This will benefit our new and existing customers,” says Rosti’s Chairman Eric Persson.


Rosti is part of Nordstjernan’s Industry sector, which accounts for approximately one-fifth of Nordstjernan’s net asset value. In the Industry sector, Nordstjernan invests in industrial companies with an established business and which have long-term global growth potential.
