Sun Acquisitions Announces the Sale of a Knife and Blade Fabricator

Chicago, IL, April 26, 2019 --( Sun Acquisitions is pleased to announce the sale of a knife and blade fabricator in Southern Illinois.

The company uses CNC Flat Grinder machines to produce high quality and high tolerance blades and knives. The company’s client-oriented approach has allowed them to build a large base of repeat customers. The CNC Flat Grinder technology has produced short lead times clients while generating consistently high profit margins. They serve individual clients as well as distributers and have earned a strong reputation within the industry for their outstanding customer service and high-quality products.

The company has tremendous opportunities for growth by expanding into other product lines, reaching a broader range of clients around the Midwest, and potentially adding other manufacturing processes to their repertoire. The business has the foundation to execute on all of the above growth strategies.

After the sale of his business, the owner stated, “The biggest factor that made a difference in me selling this business at a decent price was the way Sun Acquisitions advertised my business. They reached a much bigger market than I would have been able to on my own.” Sun Acquisitions generated over 36 inquires on the business, which led to 12 qualified buyers and 4 final offers. Joe Beer, Vice President of Operations at Sun Acquisitions, noted, “This was a fairly smooth transaction as both parties worked very well together to get through the diligence process and prepare for a proper transition.”

Toby Davis was the lead advisor and managed all aspects of this client engagement. Toby has over 35 years of experience in originating, structuring and negotiating business purchase and sale transactions.
