Total Systems Control


Sep 2018



Multi-Flow Industries acquired Generational Equity client Total Systems Control Inc. on September 5, 2018.

Located in Large, PA, Total Systems Control provides professional services to businesses operating within the hospitality and beverage industries. Founded in 1997, it is a certified vendor with the PA Gaming Commission as well as a certified Pure Flow Perlick Dealer, offering a variety of bar services and products to its customers.

Multi-Flow is also a Pennsylvania-based business, headquartered in Huntingdon Valley. Founded in 1937 with the goal of providing the best quality fountain beverages at the best possible price, Multi-Flow now employs nearly 200 employees in seven states, with a geographic footprint spanning 15 service centers and new services offerings such as private labeling and contract manufacturing.

Multi-Flow Industries is owned by a group of private investors and managed by Falconhead Capital of New York City.

Generational Equity Senior Managing Director Doug Smith’s team, led by trusted affiliate Jerry Yocum and assisted by Senior Vice President Ryan Johnson, successfully closed the deal. Senior Managing Director Rick Buchoz established the initial relationship with Total Systems Control.

“This was a very enjoyable transaction,” said Yocum.

“Both the buyer and seller were very well established in the beverage space. There were strong synergies in the businesses. Each party worked to overcome all areas of disagreement to get the deal to the finish line.”  

Our M&A professionals take great pride in introducing our clients to professional buyers that understand the culture and history of their business, and supporting their successful journey to exit.
