Singer Equities Merges with Bishop Lifting Products
AEA Investors, one of the oldest private equity groups in the U.S., has formed SB Holdings to combine Singer Equities with the acquisition of Bishop Lifting Products. Both groups provide high value added products used in the industrial distribution market sector.
"Bringing these two groups together under one umbrella made sense when considering common customer types, economies of scale, and cross selling opportunities. Jeff Bishop will continue as president of Bishop Lifting Products and Don Fritzinger remains president of Singer Equities, with both groups continuing as independent entities executing on their respective strategies in their industries and taking advantage of the consolidation opportunities that are so prevalent in both spaces", said Otis Dufrene, CEO of SB Holdings and a forty plus year veteran of the industry.
