Aetna Acquires Pro-Fab
Aetna Plastics Corp. of Cleveland, OH has acquired
Pro-Fab Manufacturing, Inc. a division of Magnus
Equipment of Willoughby, OH. Pro-Fab is a 25 year old
fabricator of corrosion resistant plastic equipment with a

acquired in 2004. The combined operations of the two
companies will form one of the Midwest’s largest fabricators
of plastics equipment and materials for the chemical,
metals, water treatment and general industrial markets.
Aetna Plastics started in 1946 as a distributor and fabricator
of plastics materials. Aetna is one of the nation’s
oldest plastics distributors and a founding member of the
International Association of Plastics Distributors. The
association’s annual achievement award, “The Paul Davis
Award of Merit” is named after its founder.
