Tektite Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged lighting products, knives, and other accessories, has acquired the assets of C&M Mold and Tool Co., a Pennsylvania-based manufacturer of premium quality production tooling for plastic injection molding.

An NJBIA member based in Trenton, Tektite Industries has been serving the outdoor, industrial, public safety, and military markets for over three decades. The acquisition gives Tektite increased in-house capabilities to build its own tooling for injection mold and dies — a function that Tektite had predominantly outsourced to C&M in the past.

“By expanding our in-house tooling capabilities, we are poised to serve customers faster, better and more cost-effectively in support of our company mission,” said Scott Mele, founder and owner of Tektite Industries. “We are also proud to announce that this acquisition allows us to further our commitment to keeping jobs in America in compliance with the Buy American Act.”

The acquisition comes as Tektite celebrates 32 years in business. Tektite is widely known for providing rugged LED flashlights, LED replacement bulbs, dive lights, strobes, marker lights, tactical lights, infrared strobes, knives, and accessories that are used by scuba divers, mountaineers, police officers, firefighters, military and more.

All former C&M employees and equipment were consolidated and moved into Tektite’s Trenton manufacturing facility. No jobs were lost as a result of the acquisition, which became effective on Sept. 1, 2022.
