Broadview Group Makes Strategic Investment in VMC Group

Vibration Mountings & Controls, Inc. ("VMC Group"), a globally recognized leader in vibration isolation, seismic control, and shock protection solutions, announced the acquisition of Cannon Fabrication ("CanFab"), a manufacturer of engineered commercial HVAC accessories, and BRD Noise and Vibration Control ("BRD"), a provider of noise and vibration control solutions.

Broadview Group Holdings, LLC, a leader in direct middle-market investing, made a strategic investment in VMC Group to recapitalize the business and support the two acquisitions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The addition of CanFab and BRD represents a critical step in further differentiating VMC Group as a leading controlled environment solutions provider. VMC Group and its family of brands offer engineered products and solutions for customers who need to measure and mitigate the negative effects of air, noise, seismic, vibration, and shock forces in demanding, high cost-of-failure applications and markets. As part of its ongoing strategy, VMC Group will continue to expand its portfolio of differentiated, highly engineered products and value-added testing, certification, compliance, and engineering services.

"VMC Group is uniquely positioned and primed for substantial growth, both within its core markets, and through the pursuit of untapped market opportunities," said Clay Hunter, Co-Founder and CEO at Broadview. "We believe systemic tailwinds driving digitalization, decarbonization, and the growing importance of indoor environmental quality and energy efficiency, as well as the growing prevalence of building codes governing seismic and noise pollution, provide VMC Group ample opportunity to expand its suite of solutions and drive well above market growth. Our unique structure and long-term investment horizon allow us to support VMC Group as they further distance themselves from competitors."

"We are excited to have found a partner who shares our vision for the future of VMC Group and demonstrated the thoughtfulness and flexibility to craft a transaction that best met the needs and desires of VMC Group and its shareholders. Broadview's understanding of our markets, distinguished track record of supporting engineered product manufacturers, and long-term value creation focus were critical differentiators as we selected a partner," said John Wilson, Jr., VMC Group's Chairman and CEO. "The power of VMC Group and Broadview together will enable us to achieve our singular mission of providing our customers more control over the quality of the environments in which we all live and work."
