INVESTMENT DATE: March 1998

Headquarters: Newark, NJ

Polymer Extruded Products, or PEP, is a premier manufacturer of specially engineered and niche marketed plastic films and sheets. PEP holds strong market shares in each of its core product lines. Products manufactured by PEP include Korad acrylic films which are used as decorative and UV protective surfacing, and plate polished cellulose acetate sheets which are of optical quality and are used in safety eyewear such as face shields or ski goggles. PEP’s products are ultimately sold to “converters” who perform additional operations on the product or incorporate the material into a composite product, which is then offered for sale to consumers.

Note: Investment made by Shoreline professionals while at a prior firm.
