Peak Rock Acquires Industrial Division of RJF

profusion nfPeak Rock Capital has formed ProFusion Industries to acquire the industrial products division of RJF International Corporation.

“We are pleased to support ProFusion Industries and its employees in building a leading manufacturer and distributor of polymer-based products, with an impressive reputation for exceptional manufacturing capabilities and customer loyalty,” said Anthony DiSimone, CEO of Peak Rock Capital. “ProFusion Industries is a great example of our interest in carving out manufacturing divisions where we can drive revenue growth and profit improvement by working with management to optimize the company’s strategy and operations.”

ProFusion Industries is a manufacturer and provider of transit matting, protective linings, custom design specialty film products and various printing services. The company’s products are used in the specialty industrial, transportation and commercial building products industries. ProFusion was initially formed by the BFGoodrich Company in 1949 and became a part of RJF International Corporation through a management buyout of the BFGoodrich Fabricated Polymers Division in 1988. ProFusion is headquartered in Marietta, OH (www.profusionindustries.com).

Earlier this week, Peak Rock Capital closed on the acquisition of the interior products division of RJF International Corporation creating Koroseal Interior Products, a manufacturer and distributor of wall coverings, wall protection systems and dry-erasable wall coverings (Peak Rock Launches Koroseal with Latest Buy).

Peak Rock Capital makes debt and equity investments of $20 million to $150 million in middle market companies with revenues from $50 million to $1 billion and enterprise values from $25 million to $500 million. Sectors of interest include business and commercial services; consumer; distribution and logistics; energy and related services; healthcare; industrials; manufacturing, metals, and media. The firm is based in Austin, TX (www.peakrockcapital.com).

“ProFusion Industries has an impressive array of manufacturing capabilities that are driven by its experienced and talented workforce. As an independent entity, the company and its employees will be able to ignite future growth by focusing on their specialized products and pursuing attractive opportunities in their markets, without the constraints of operating as a division within a larger organization,” said Robert Strauss, Managing Director of Peak Rock Capital.
