In 1997, TPG began with the acquisition of Borse Industries, a custom molding company located in Willowbrook, Illinois. That same year, Borse merged with Pawnee Rotational Molding, a custom rotational molding company located in Maple Plain, Minnesota. We continued to add locations and resources in 1998 by acquiring Wedco Molded Products, a custom, proprietary blow and rotational molding company located in Boucherville, Quebec. We also added Fremont Plastics Products, a custom blow-modling company located in Fremont, Ohio.
In 2006, the proprietary and custom blow-molding from The Plastic Group’s Bourcherville, Quebec operation was relocated to its U.S. facilities. In 2007, we sold our highly successful rotational molding operation, allowing TPG to focus all its resources on its core competency, blow molding.
In 2015, The Plastics Group formed a new Consumer Products Division called TRUSOLV. Focused on developing and marketing innovative product in the Lawn & Garden and Automotive Aftermarket categories. TRUSOLV markets Portable Fuel Containers and Oil Change Accessories under the Briggs & Stratton, Wedco and GarageBOSS brands. With a commitment to quality and consumer satisfaction, TRUSOLV products can be found at most major retailers such as Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, AutoZone and Advance Auto Parts.
