Arbor Investments acquires Columbus Manufacturing
Private equity firm Arbor Investments, in partnership with management and chief executive Timothy Fallon, has acquired Columbus Manufacturing, a portfolio company of Endeavour Capital.
Columbus, headquartered in Hayward, California, is a branded manufacturer of retail ready, super premium, artisanal salumi and related deli meat products. Terms of the sale were withheld.
Established by the Domenici and Parducci families in 1917, Columbus’ products are exclusively sold through supermarkets, club stores and specialty grocery stores across North America. Columbus operates three manufacturing facilities in the San Francisco area occupying more than 270,000 square feet and has the capability to manufacture a wide variety of products such as finocchiona, genoa and calabrese salame.
The company will continue to operate out of its existing facilities and will be led by Fallon and his senior management team.
"We were drawn to Columbus due to the Company's unrivaled quality products and exceptional management team led by well-regarded food industry CEO Timothy Fallon," says Ryan McKenzie of Arbor Investments. "Columbus' family of products are simply peerless in all respects, from the use of proprietary spice blends and old world recipes, to their hand-crafted manufacturing processes. The Columbus brand is synonymous with unmatched quality and our investment objective is to build upon their 95 year tradition and foundation to increase the availability of Columbus' gourmet level salame and deli products across North America."
