Partnering with management to grow a leading value-added distributor of aluminum extrusions and related products

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Lake Worth, Florida, Eastern Metal Supply (“EMS”) started with just five employees and has grown to employ approximately 800 today. Their single Florida location has also grown into fourteen nationwide distribution centers and manufacturing facilities, totaling nearly 1.5 million square feet under roof.

Transaction

Wynnchurch invested in EMS in September 2019.

Opportunity

EMS represented an opportunity to acquire a value-added distributor that serves a wide variety of end markets and has leading share in the Southeast U.S. EMS is an ideal platform poised for continued growth and is well positioned within its broader value chain.

Strategy

Wynnchurch and management are driving organic growth and efficiency by expanding into new products and geographies and executing on operational initiatives designed to optimize the Company’s systems.
