Boston – Alantra has advised Engineered Products (“EP” or “The Company”), a leading designer, manufacturer, and installer of structural storage solutions, on its sale to MSouth Equity Partners, a private equity investment firm.

Founded in 1955, Engineered Products, focuses on highly engineered racking structures to support Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (“ASRS”) for a broad range of end-markets. EP also manufactures conventional racking systems and flow system components. 

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, MSouth Equity Partners has raised more than $2.2 billion of capital across four funds and maintains a focus on middle market businesses, providing equity capital and expertise to support management teams in acquisitions and recapitalizations.

Tommy Sinclair, CEO at EP said: “We are very pleased to establish a new partnership with MSouth which is critical to support our team and our customers through our growth acceleration. Our team thoroughly enjoyed working with Alantra. Their transaction experience, industry knowledge and professional guidance were all clearly evident and valuable during every step of the process.”

Paul Colone, Managing Partner at Alantra US added: “It was an absolute pleasure working with Engineered Products’ shareholders and management team and we are very grateful for the opportunity to advise on this transaction. The Company developed and is executing on a dynamic growth plan and the clear objective of our mandate was to secure a partner to further accelerate EP’s growth trajectory. The MSouth team clearly emerged as the ideal partner for EP and its team and we are excited to witness the continued success of the company.”

Chris Donegan, Managing Director at Alantra US, said: “Several years ago EP pivoted its strategy to focus on custom engineered racking solutions to support the fast growing ASRS market.  Today EP is the preferred partner for several global integrators who value EP’s turnkey solutions that are designed to support automated systems. We are proud to add the EP transaction to our list of deals involving leaders in the Material Handling and Industrial Automation sectors.”
