Benada Aluminum Products, LLC, an aluminum extruder in Sanford, FL, has changed ownership. Shadowbrier Capital Partners, LLC acquired a controlling stake in Benada from its previous owners Big Shoulders Capital and ABGB Capital, LLC, which maintain a minority stake.
“Our management team is delighted to partner with Shadowbriar given its expansive vision for our company and deep experience in both [industrial companies] and manufacturing,” said Jim Piperato, chief executive officer of Benada. “We would also like to thank Big Shoulders and ABGB for their support while we grew significantly under their ownership.”
Benada has 60 years of experience in the extrusion industry and operates three press lines, as well as having value-added fabrication capabilities and a horizontal paint line capable of finishing profiles up to 40 ft in length. With an excellent reputation for short customer lead times and outstanding product quality, the extruder is a full service operation serving the building, distribution, storm protection, and industrial customers across the southeastern U.S.
“Benada has demonstrated strong growth in recent years based on the strength of its management, operational footprint and end-markets,” said Matt Homme, managing Partner of Shadowbriar. “We look forward to partnering with the Benada team to expand the Company’s manufacturing capabilities as it continues to provide outstanding service to its diverse customer base in the Southeast.”
