Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM) available upon receipt of our short online NDA.

The business manufactures and maintains process controllers servicing the water/wastewater, industrial, and institutional markets. Products are used in nuclear power plants, universities, hospitals, steel mills, paper mills etc. Two contract manufacturers make the products. One makes the products, assembles and drop ships them directly to customers. The other ships parts for final assembly at the Company’s HQ. The business model has reduced overhead and the need for larger facilities.

The Company has been through several incarnations since the late 1800’s and into the1900s when early models of process controllers were invented. This legacy of innovation was nearly lost when the 2004 buyers, a private equity group, failed to implement adequate management and oversight of operations. When purchased and a new LLC established in 2019, the operation was distressed; innovation stalled and engineering on hold.
The current owner, an industry-insider, knew what needed to be done, reduced manpower redundancy, but saved jobs and inspired innovation once again. The value-add potential seen in restructuring; reducing overhead, implementing operational efficiencies and improvements resulted in increased bottom-line profitability and the business’ gross margin.

NDA is required to secure comprehensive Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM) crafted by broker.
