Baird Capital Partners portfolio company MedPlast Inc. (MedPlast) announced today it has dramatically increased its size and reach by acquiring United Plastics Group, Inc. (UPG) (MedPlast news release).

Headquartered in Tempe, Ariz., MedPlast manufactures precision molded plastic and rubber components, serving the healthcare and select commercial markets in the United States.
