Aurora Plastics was founded in 1997 by three vastly experienced PVC professionals dedicated to meeting the global quality challenges facing the industry. We successfully grew the company for 19 years, and in August 2016, Wind Point Partners, a Chicago-based private equity firm and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan partnered to acquire the company. This provided Aurora Plastics the investment support required for new product development and geographic expansion, while allowing us to maintain a culture of excellence in product and service.
Aurora Plastics’ compounds are not only laboratory tested, but field proven with an outstanding performance record. We continue to push the latest technology envelope of compounding techniques with a culture of continuous improvement. This complements our R&D team that is focused on compound optimization in order to serve individual customer requirements.
We also offer timely color matches. Additionally, Aurora Plastics’ R&D team works with cutting edge raw materials and compound developments to produce the next generations of high-performance compounds.
