Boots says Milacron 'clearly poised for additional growth'
EVANSVILLE, IND. (May 3, 12:55 p.m. ET) -- Ira Boots, the high-profile former top executive of packaging giant Berry Plastics Corp., said he is pumped up to become chairman of Milacron LLC and help lead the only remaining U.S. broad-line plastics equipment maker.
"My quest to continue to maintain and grow jobs in the USA remains a priority," he said.
News that Boots, 58, will join Milacron's board of directors as chairman came in an April 30 announcement that CCMP Capital Advisors LLC has completed its acquisition of the Cincinnati-based plastics machinery maker.
Boots said Milacron today is "right back into a powerhouse situation" after an "incredible turnaround."
"We are clearly poised for additional growth," he said in a telephone interview.
Boots is well-known in the private equity industry and Wall Street. Berry Plastics had sales of less than $60 million in sales in 1990, when Boots and other executives began reaching out to private equity investors. After a string of acquisitions, within five years, Berry had more than quadrupled sales, to $250 million.
More recently, Evansville, Ind.-based Berry Plastics generated sales of $4.65 billion for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2011. In March, Berry announced plans for an initial public offering.
Boots, a toolmaker by trade, started in 1978 at Imperial Plastics in Evansville (which later became Berry) as manager of the tooling department.
Boots retired from his position of Berry chairman and CEO in 2010. Then, last fall, he left Berry's board of directors.
Since then, Boots, who lives in Evansville, has been doing volunteer work and educating himself about Internet marketing and social media. "How to use modern-day tools such as social media and how to apply them to older-style companies," he explained.
Boots said the opportunity was too good to pass up, since he feels comfortable with CCMP and respects Milacron's role as a major U.S. equipment maker.
