Molded Dimensions, Inc.
Mike Katz, an MBA with several years of manufacturing management experience, talks about purchasing Molded Dimensions, Inc. (MDI), a Wisconsin-based plastics manufacturer, with his wife Linda, who also has a manufacturing background. The case describes at length negotiating the price and securing financing for the small manufacturing company. Throughout the process, the Katzes stick to their main tenet of ensuring a smooth transition for the employees and not jeopardizing their jobs. Almost immediately after acquiring MDI, however, the Katzes face a sudden and unexpected drop in business.
