Wynnchurch Capital Invests in Eastern Metal Supply

Wynnchurch Capital has made an investment in Eastern Metal Supply (EMS) a distributor of aluminium extrusions and related products.

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Lake Worth, Florida, EMS started with just five employees and has grown to employ approximately 800 today. Their single Florida location has also grown into fourteen nationwide distribution centres and manufacturing facilities, totalling nearly 1.5 million square feet under roof.
“We have built and grown EMS by providing our customers with exceptional service, just-in-time delivery and a wide breadth of value-added products. Wynnchurch shares this commitment and we are excited to partner with them as we continue that mission and pursue our next phase of growth,” says Greg Weekes, President and Co-Founder of EMS.
Chris O’Brien, Managing Partner at Wynnchurch, says: “For nearly 20 years, a core part of our strategy at Wynnchurch has been investing in founder-led companies. We are very fortunate to be able to continue this with our investment in EMS and partnership with Greg.”
Greg Gleason, Managing Director at Wynnchurch, adds: “As a market-leading, value-added distributor serving a wide variety of end markets, EMS is an ideal platform poised for continued growth. We look forward to working with Greg and his team to build on this impressive track record.”
