Photo: Tim Smith“Selling a family owned business is complex and emotionally taxing. Our advisors, FOCUS Investment Banking, ran a very thorough process and identified a great deal of interest in Smiths among both strategic and private equity buyers. FOCUS quickly identified more than four hundred prospective buyers, of which sixty-five signed NDAs. They showed tremendous persistence and energy in driving the process relentlessly to a successful conclusion. I am excited that Smiths will be joining ARCH Global Precision and look forward to further enhancing the business that was started by my father in 1974.”
