S&H Industries manufactures and sells automotive aftermarket tools and productivity-enhancing tools used in the collision repair industry.  Products are sold nationwide through distributors and dealers.  S&H wanted to acquire a complementary business to increase its product offering and to leverage its strong customer relationships.

As exclusive financial advisor, Emprise Partners identified and initiated the acquisition of Viking Industries LLC, a manufacturer of a complete line of US-made and imported pneumatic tools and related accessories to customers in the automobile, construction, and welding markets.

“Emprise Partners was instrumental in the origination and execution of the acquisition of Viking Industries.  As our buy-side representative, Emprise Partners exceeded my expectations in the number and quality of opportunities generated.  Their keen insight and guidance, provided at critical junctures in the negotiations, was extremely valuable.”
