Presco Polymers Acquires William Frick & Company

Presco Polymers Opco, Inc. (“Presco”) of Sherman, TX would like to announce the acquisition of William
Frick & Company (“Frick”). The acquisition closed on December 22, 2020. Terms of the transaction are
not being disclosed.

Frick is a designer, manufacturer and value-added reseller of specialty labeling and marking products
including custom labels, signs, tags, markers, nameplates, and radio frequency identification (RFID)
products to the Utility (electric, telecommunications, cablevision), OEM, Aerospace, Logistics, and Asset
Management industries. Frick will retain their current name and will continue to operate in Libertyville,

“Presco is pleased to announce its recent acquisition of William Frick & Company,” said Lisa McGregor,
CEO of Presco. “For the past few years, Presco’s mission has been to become the leading provider of
safety marking and damage prevention products. The acquisition of Frick brings us one step closer to
accomplishing this goal. The combination of resources, services and extension of products opens
numerous opportunities for both entities.”

Jeff Brandt, President of Frick commented, “Presco’s tenure and reputation in the industry set them
apart during our sale process. Their support and respect for our products made us confident that joining
our companies was the right decision. We are fortunate to have found such a synergistic partnership
and look forward to our next chapter with Presco.”

Together with its previous acquisition of Pro Line Safety Products (Pro Line), Presco is a well-known
manufacturer of safety marking and damage prevention products. The addition of Frick to the Presco
family creates a market leading platform with superior scale and capabilities. The merger capitalizes on
strong cross-selling opportunities while diversifying the companies’ product portfolios.
Formed in 1943, Presco manufactures safety marking products along with extruded engineered films
and laminated product in two dedicated manufacturing facilities in Sherman, TX. These facilities house
three custom compounding and extrusion lines and over forty custom stake flag and tape converting
lines for Safety Marking Products. Pro Line, a late 2019 Presco acquisition, manufactures tracer wire and
safety marking products including detectable and non-detectable tapes for underground marking and
locating. Frick adds to Presco’s portfolio of offerings and further expands the reach to existing and
complimentary markets.

Presco’s management team continues to seek complementary strategic acquisition partners for the
company. Presco is a portfolio company of River Associates Investments, a longstanding lower middle
market private equity firm based in Chattanooga, TN.
