Tiger Group, Loeb Winternitz Accepting Bids for Fremont Plastic Asset Sale

As part of the orderly wind-down of Fremont Plastic Products Inc., Tiger Group, Loeb Winternitz LLC, and Arlington Plastics Machinery, Inc. are now accepting offers for well-maintained assets of the subsidiary of The Plastics Group, a blow molding company that had operated locations in Ohio and Illinois. The Fremont location includes 18 blow molding machines, along with pelletizers, robots, granulators, blenders, conveying, plant support, material handling, machine shop equipment and more.

The assets are currently located at the subsidiary’s 178,000-square-foot facility on Cedar Street in Fremont, about 38 miles east of Toledo, Ohio. The Plastic Group’s Willowbrook, Ill. location is in the process of being sold as an ongoing facility to another operator.
