Leading manufacturer of standard and custom engineered cellular rubber and microcellular polyurethane foam products worldwide.
Griswold, founded in 1949, develops, formulates, and manufactures continuous rolls of high-performance specialty polymers for a diverse group of end markets, including consumer products, electronics, automotive, and general industry.
Griswold specializes in "open-cell" polymers that exhibit strong elasticity and are able to repeatedly absorb impact and return to their original dimensions. Typical applications include gasketing, sealing, and cushioning, and sample end-uses range from anti-skid rubber carpet underlay to urethane cell-phone LCD display gaskets that provide sealing and vibration reduction properties to increase the durability and useful life of the cell phone. Griswold primarily sells to converters who laminate, cut, form, or otherwise alter its continuous-rolled products.
In 2014, Griswold completed the establishment of a Wholly Foreign-Owned Entity in China. Griswold now operates a warehousing and distribution facility in Shenzhen, and employs sales personnel who are responsible for the Asian market.
Griswold is located in Moosup, Connecticut. To learn more about Griswold visit their website at: www.griswoldllc.com
“Our rapport with the SLCP team was obvious from our first meeting. They bring a unique combination of operating expertise and deal making savvy to the table - they’ve been there and done that. They made the entire process smooth - they did what they said they’d do each step of the way - from LOI through closing - no re-trades. And, they structured an innovative equity participation plan for the management team that turbo charges our returns if we perform. We're looking forward to a long and mutually rewarding partnership.”
