How to Value an Injection Molding Company

Many injection molding company owner/operators ask us about valuation. There is no quick or easy answer. The value of an injection molder, custom processor or other engineered component manufacturer depends on a multitude of factors, including:

  • Size
  • Profitability, both current and historical
  • Customers, including concentration
  • End markets
  • Growth opportunities and projections
  • Management team
  • Employees
  • Location
  • Curb appeal of the plant, both exterior and interior
  • Capacity utilization
  • Equipment, including size/age/number of presses and auxiliary equipment

Transaction multiples have been creeping up since 2009 and now is a better time to sell a manufacturing business than at any point in the last 10 years. We have an excellent pulse on the market for molders and plastics processors of all sizes and would be happy to talk to you about how to value your company.
