Emory & Co. acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Wilson Hurd Manufacturing Co., Inc. in its sale to Nelson-Miller, Inc., a portfolio company of Superior Capital Partners, a private equity group based in Detroit, Michigan.
Wilson-Hurd, founded in 1904, is primarily engaged in custom electronics design and manufacturing, medical device manufacturing, printing, and fabricating. The company operates out of two manufacturing plants, one located in Wausau, Wisconsin, and one in Berlin, Wisconsin. The existing Wilson-Hurd management team will continue to operate the business as a division of Nelson-Miller.
William Siebecker, the Chairman and sole shareholder of Wilson-Hurd, praised the deal, saying, “Nelson-Miller’s willingness and desire to maintain and expand Wilson-Hurd’s Wisconsin presence made it the most desirable acquisition partner.”
John Emory Jr., President of Emory & Co., stated, “The companies are in the same markets and will gain substantial synergies by consolidating national manufacturing into Wisconsin.”
