Intrepid is pleased to announce the launch of its Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) sector focus, which will be dedicated to M&A and capital advisory services for entrepreneurs, founders, private equity firms, and global corporations operating in the industry. This sector focus is part of our broader Industrials practice, and will cover organizations that manufacture and distribute protective equipment for use in industrial, construction/utility and other potentially hazardous workplaces.
Intrepid enjoys a rich history and deep expertise in the sector. Among other notable transactions, Intrepid advised ML Kishigo on its acquisition by Bunzl; Audax Group on its add-on acquisitions of Westchester Protective Gear, Worldwide Protective Products and Primax Manufacturing, and 5.11 Tactical on its recapitalization with TA Associates. The launch of this dedicated sector focus is a continuation and formalization of the work we have done in this space.
To mark the launch, our team is excited to share the inaugural edition of Intrepid’s Personal Protective Equipment M&A Report. The purpose of this report is to explore industry trends that impact M&A, highlight key transactions and active industry acquirers, and share our views on valuation and capital trends in the industry.
We are excited about the robust backlog of opportunities, and strong interest among acquirers for high-quality assets in the PPE sector.
