ATLANTA, GA-Filtrona Extrusion, extruder of plastic profile, tube and sheet, has changed its name to Pexco. Management of the company, which is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, and operates seven manufacturing facilities in the United States and Mexico, remains unchanged.

"We're able to compete successfully due to an intense focus on efficiency in design, production and delivery,” says Pexco Chief Executive Officer Neil Shillingford. “Pexco is helping other U.S. manufacturers make better products here, not offshore.”

Pexco, which has been the brand name of the company's medical tubing products, chose its new name to emphasize a unified approach across multiple markets and production sites. Other brands that are now part of Pexco include Davidson Traffic Control Products, PDS Fence and A&B Plastics.

Pexco's capabilities are aligned around several core markets: aerospace, retail, medical, traffic control, lighting and fence. It also offers a full range of capabilities including concept design, prototyping, die making, fabrication and sub-assembly. The company operates 126 extruders, 51 co-extruders and six sheet lines in 750,000 square feet of production space. It ships more than 70 million pounds of extruded plastic product annually.
