B&H Tool Co. bring in new investor, upgrades capabilities

Plastic extrusion tooling manufacturer, B&H Tool Co., located in San Diego, CA, announced that it has brought in a new investor and recapitalized the company under a limited liability corporation. Effective October 21, the new business partner, John Ulcej, will be B&H's director of technology, engineering and manufacturing. Ulcej was an owner of Extrusion Dies Industries (EDI) and held leadership positions in the company that included president, EVP of technology and engineering manager. 

Peter Neville, who purchased B&H in 1994, will remain the company's president. "We needed to upgrade our capabilities in technology, engineering and manufacturing," Neville said. "That is why I am excited for B&H and our customers. John's background, experience and commitment are a perfect fit for what we need to continue to service the needs of our customers, employees, suppliers and other constituents for another 46 years."

Ulcej is a "hands-on" mechanical engineer who brings 30 years of plastics processing, tooling and metal working experience to B&H, along with his management experience in helping to grow successful companies.

"Both his insight and investment provide B&H with the leverage to expand engineering and open up new markets - something we've wanted to do," Neville stated. "John's understanding of the needs of the plastics industry in terms of polymer processing, polymer flow analysis, tooling design and precision manufacturing techniques will guide B&H into new markets and expand those we currently serve."

Ulcej commented, "I'm looking forward to the opportunities at B&H. We'll continue to invest in the people and technology required to keep B&H positioned as a high-quality manufacturer of precision tooling for the wire, cable and tubing industries. Our vision is to become a state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing facility that provides innovations in engineering and an expanded product line."

For more than 40 years, B&H Tool Co. has served industrial and medical markets, and pipe and profile extrusion processors throughout the world, providing engineering, production and technical support to customers. The company also manufactures adapters, die supports and stock parts to keep their customers up and running. It's B&H's mission to create strategic alliances with plastic extrusion tooling customers and provide innovative, practical tooling solutions.
