After eighteen months of insolvency proceedings, ECKA Granules needed a buyer that could successfully work with its creditors, strategic advisors, and insolvency administrator. Platinum Equity successfully navigated the complex transaction and met the interests of ECKA's key stakeholders.
Acquiring ECKA Granules furthered our ongoing strategy to expand our presence, which also includes SCM Metal Products, in the metal powders industry. We continue seeking related acquisitions in this space.
