Four Companies Unite to Create New Selinsky FORCE

Sun February 08, 2009 - Midwest Edition

Henry A. Selinsky Inc., Selinsky Bros. Inc., Meredith Erectors Inc. and Hammond Industrial Construction have joined forces to become the Selinsky FORCE, a single-source provider of industrial rigging and hauling, equipment rental, construction, refractory service and plant maintenance.

Under the new identity and ownership by Excel Capital Partners LP, the four companies are positioned for greater growth and market dominance as a provider of industrial construction services in the region. Leadership at the four companies remains the same, and there will be no staff reductions as a result of the merger and renaming.

Beginning in mid-February, corporate offices for the new company will be located at 4244 Mt. Pleasant St. N.W., Suite 100, North Canton, Ohio. The new location will centralize activities for the different business segments for more efficient operation and future expansion.

The creation of the Selinsky FORCE brings into sharp focus how, when combined, the four companies lead the market by sheer force. Operation as one entity also enables industrial customers to achieve greater efficiencies by taking advantage of the deeper experience and more diverse portfolio now offered.

“As Selinsky FORCE, the depth of our industrial capabilities and services is unmatched in the region. With the new name, we are conveying the reality that we are a force to be reckoned with,” said John Selinsky, president of the Selinsky FORCE.

“We now bring our customers deeper service offerings and broader experience with the same expertise that our companies have represented for decades,” added Selinsky.

As the Selinsky FORCE, the four industrial service providers are able to expand their geographical reach beyond Ohio and the bordering states, more effectively cross-sell services and position the company for future expansion.

Excel Capital Partners LP is a private equity group dedicated to innovative value investing in the smaller end of the middle market sectors of manufacturing, value-added distribution and select business services.
