Managing Director Stephen Crisham and Vice President Mike Meredith led the Generational Equity deal team that advised Disc-Lock on the transaction. Mike stated, "This was a unique transaction in that Disc-Lock had developed numerous patented fastening solutions but had a limited marketing and sales function. The buyer had an extensive sales and distribution network, but did not possess any patented fastening solutions. The synergies of the combined entities was obvious to both our client and the buyer."
