New Water Portfolio Company Nelson Miller Group Acquires Injection Works

August 23, BOCA RATON, FL — New Water Capital (“New Water”), an operationally-focused lower middle market private equity firm, today announced that its portfolio company, Nelson Miller Group, has completed the acquisition of Injection Works, a Mount Laurel, New Jersey-based provider of complex, custom thermoplastic injection molded plastic components and assemblies for customers in medical, industrial, and electrical end-markets, among others.

Injection Works will join together with current New Water portfolio company Nelson Miller Group (NMG), which is a full-service provider of engineering, manufacturing and supply chain solutions focused on supporting high-reliability applications across industrial, IoT, medical, lighting and aerospace industries. The acquisition, which represents NMG’s second add-on investment, expands the platform’s North American manufacturing footprint and capability set, further enabling its ability to deliver highly –engineered, custom solutions to its customers.

Founded in 1988 by Chris Rapacki, Injection Works has provided custom thermoplastic injection molded products and associated services to its customers for over 35 years.

“Injection Works provides a key manufacturing capability that will allow NMG to offer a broader range of products and further our goal of having more control over the supply chain while also being geographically close to our customers,” said Jim Kaldem, President and CEO of Nelson Miller Group. “Additionally, the acquisition allows us to do more for our customers, which will continue to fortify the long-term relationships with existing customers who value Injection Work’s innovative thinking, engineering expertise, and ability to deliver complex solutions.”

Adds Chris Rapacki, Co-Founder and CEO of Injection Works, “Nelson Miller Group shares in our commitment to our customers and employees, which is built on years of trust delivered through quality and dependability. By joining NMG, Injection Works opens the door to new technologies, engineering solutions, and supply chain support for our customers.”

“We are excited to welcome Injection Works to the platform” said New Water Capital Principal Matt Carlos. “Chris has created an exceptional reputation with Injection Works over the years, and we are eager to partner with them to continue to grow its legacy and achieve a new level of success for its customers, employees and the entirety of the Nelson Miller Group.”
