Wynnchurch invests in Eastern Metal Supply
ROSEMONT -- Wynnchurch Capital, LLC announced today that it has made an investment in Eastern Metal Supply, a value-added distributor of aluminum extrusions and related products.
Terms of the investment were not announced.
Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Lake Worth, Fla., EMS started with five employees and has grown to employ approximately 800 today. Its single Florida location has also grown into 14 nationwide distribution centers and manufacturing facilities, totaling nearly 1.5 million square feet.
"Wynnchurch shares this commitment and we are excited to partner with them as we continue that mission and pursue our next phase of growth," said Greg Weekes, president and co-founder of EMS.
Wynnchurch Managing Director Greg Gleason said EMS "is an ideal platform poised for continued growth."
Wynnchurch Capital is actively investing from its $1.3 billion Fund IV, which includes the acquition of MPL Holdings and two closed-die forging facilities of Allegheny Technologies last June.
