Private equity firm Bradford Equities Management acquired Generational Equity client United Brass Works in August 2016. The companies did not disclose details of the deal.

Founded in 1910 as a steam valves and components manufacturer, United Brass Works, located in Randleman, North Carolina, now produces high-quality bronze, ductile iron, and carbon steel valves used in a variety of applications and serves many industries including fire protection.

Bradford Equities Management LLC acquires U.S. high-quality middle-market companies in partnership with management across a variety of industries, preferring low-technology manufacturing businesses. BEM generally seeks companies with $15 to $75 million in annual revenues for platform acquisitions and a minimum of $5 million in revenues for add-on acquisitions.

William Hunter, Managing Director with Generational Equity, led the deal. “This was one of the more complicated transactions that I have worked on in my career,” said Hunter. “With the help and patience of Rich at Bradford, we were able to overcome all of the issues that existed.”
