Businesses Sold

Below is a small sampling of the manufacturing businesses we’ve sold.

National statistics show that most manufacturing companies in the lower middle market are sold to buyers from more than 100 miles away. Make sure that the broker you are considering has a national, rather than just a local, following to achieve the best results.  At Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, Inc., we’re known for bringing only the most qualified buyers into our client companies. It’s common for us to vet out hundreds of buyers, and only bring a small handful to visit. But those few are ALWAYS both professionally and financially qualified. Anything less than that is a waste of our time, and yours!

Aerospace

Aerospace Component Manufacturer – New England

Price Not Disclosed

With two LOIs submitted on this business, we'd found the perfect buyer for our client. However, with a 65% customer concentration, 12 acquisition lenders turned the deal down. We referred the buyer to one or our national lenders who understands the aerospace industry, in which it's almost impossible to not have a concentration. This business had 2 shareholders, one wanting immediate retirement and one wanting to continue working. We got them BOTH what they wanted.

Wire EDM

Specialty Tooling and Wire EDM Manufacturer

Price Not Disclosed
Our client said the deal MUST close in 2018 for tax purposes, but we had only 60 days from LOI to the end of the year. Add in 2 major holidays, a car crash, a snowstorm, and the client's roof collapsing with equipment damage and a government shutdown with the financing coming from the SBA. We still closed it on December 31st because that's how we roll! We obtained multiple offers and this business sold over list price.
Vacuum, sintering, MIM, vacuum hot presses

Industrial Furnace Mfg., Sustainable Economic Moat

Price Not Disclosed
Our client was an industrial furnace manufacturer specializing in new and re-manufactured industrial vacuum, sintering, MIM, vacuum hot presses and hydrogen furnaces. To ensure the continuity of the company our client requested that we find a buyer with relevant industry experience, rather than simply a financial investor. This was like finding a needle in a haystack, but we found the perfect match!
Fiberglass Manufacturer

Manufacturer of Fiberglass Products

Price Not Disclosed
The largest company in the industry offered to purchase our client to gain their customers and close the plant. Our client gave us strict orders to find an acquirer who would keep the jobs in KY. We vetted over 200 companies, granted 7 visits, and received 6 offers. With the business development and sales skills of the family who made this acquisition, the largest company in the industry might not be the largest for very long! Best wishes to our new friends - the Accelerated Team will enjoy watching what happens next!
Metal Fabrication

Metal Fabrication Company

Price Not Disclosed
National award winning 40-year old metal fabrication and welding company successfully sold to an out of state buyer who will be relocating to New England to take the helm of our client company. According to the Market Pulse report, most buyers of lower middle market manufacturing companies come from more than 100 miles away. If you're considering a broker who only works locally, you might be shooting yourself in the foot.
Curved Wood Manufacturer

Mfgr. of Architectural Curved Wood Panels

Price Not Disclosed
After vetting more than 100 buyers, only four were granted plant tours.  All four submitted Letters of Intent.  The business was sold to an out of state buyer who relocated to take the helm of this company keeping the jobs in the community.
Sold (MP-450)

Recognized Industry Leader of Micro-Precision Manufacturing

Price Not Disclosed
We successfully sold this carve out of a publicly traded company. After having vetted over 250 buyers, only 9 were granted visits. We obtained multiple offers and the business sold at more than the list price. This business was listed with a local broker for more than a year with no result before we were called in to sell.
CNC Component Manufacturer

CNC Component Manufacturer Serving OEMS

Price Not Disclosed
Our client was very concerned about the continuity of the company and future opportunity for the staff who had helped him become so successful.  We were able to find the perfect match in an out of state buyer who previously ran a division of J&J.
aerospace

MA Based Aerospace Component Manufacturer

Price Not Disclosed Sold at list price within 40 days.
Maintenance & Repair Technology

Midwest Industrial Equipment Repair Manufacturing Company

Price Not Disclosed After vetting hundreds of potential buyers, 3 strategic buyers with multiple holdings were granted plant tours and meetings. Two of the three make offers and our client gets to choose to whom they wish to sell. We accomplished in record time what a local broker couldn't do in 4 years of listing this business. A "local" broker is not always the best choice. It's about exposure to the best manufacturing business buyers in the U.S.
