Main Street buys specialty metals maker

Mar 29, 2016

Main Street Capital Holdings LLC , based downtown, acquired Sofield Manufacturing Co., of Ridgefield Park, N.J. Financials were not disclosed but Main Street typically takes a control position in companies with enterprise values ranging from $10 million to $125 million. Sofield will now be part of the Hi-Rel Group, an Essex, Conn.-based manufacturer of metal components for the microelectronic packaging industry that Main Street bought in April 2013. “The industry is still fairly fragmented and there are a lot of companies similar to Sofield that would fit well with Hi-Rel,” Ryan Davis , Main Street managing partner, said. “We’re actively looking for additional add-on opportunities.” That includes companies with complimentary products or manufacturing capabilities, particularly those involving precision metal work with tight tolerances, micro electronics or plating and surfacing finishing, Main Street said.
