PNC Riverarch Capital announced an equity recapitalization of Custom Molded Products, LLC (CMP), a leading manufacturer and distributor of injection molded plastic components used in spas, pools, and whirlpool baths. The investment was led by PNC Riverarch Capital, with a co-investment from Florida Capital Partners.
The transaction also included a significant re-investment by the CMP cofounders, William Drury and Charles Li, who will continue to lead the business going forward.

Headquartered in Newnan, Ga., CMP serves over 350 active customers and offers over 3,900 products, including jets, valves, filters and various other plastic components.
The transaction for PNC Riverarch Capital was led by Hand; Robert Dolan, director; and David Poss, associate. PNC Riverarch Capital will be represented on the CMP Board of Directors by Hand and Dolan. Senior debt for the transaction was provided by First Commonwealth Bank.
