MIDMARK CAPITAL HAS SOLD TCR ENGINEERED COMPONENTS LLC

Birmingham, Michigan – August 24, 2016 – Angle Advisors is pleased to announce the sale of TCR Engineered Components LLC (“TCR” or the “Company”). Angle Advisors acted as the exclusive investment banking advisor to TCR in completing this transaction.

LogosBased in Minneapolis, MN, TCR is a leading manufacturer of highly engineered components that combines cold forming, precision screw machining, and finishing operations to make extremely close-tolerance metal components which are used in automobiles, recreational and industrial-use vehicles and applications, and building products.  Specific component uses include airbag and restraint safety systems, non-auto vehicular hydraulics, specialty air, gas & fluid connectors, and window hardware.  Operating from a single facility, TCR employs approximately 150 skilled and administrative workers.

“Through this sale TCR will advance its leadership position in close-tolerance metalworking and automotive safety system components. Under the new privately held structure of the purchaser, TCR’s long-term strategies to expand capabilities in critical powertrain and drivetrain automotive systems will be enhanced,” said Wayne Clevenger, Managing Director at MidMark Capital.

Doug Parker, Managing Director at MidMark Capital, said, “TCR has evolved over our investment period and become one of the most respected fabricators of components to the automotive safety industry as evidenced by TCR’s selection by Autoliv as one of the first Zero Defect Suppliers in their supply chain.  We selected Angle Advisors to help us find the right buyers for this business because of their deep experience in automotive and industrial transactions and we were delighted with the interest they generated, their guidance, persistence, and hard work.  We believe the sale will create new and bigger opportunities for TCR and its employees.”
