Parkline Completes Acquisition of the Metal Building Business of Bebco Industries
July 5, 2016 • Charleston, West Virginia and Hitchcock, Texas
Parkline, a portfolio company of Charlotte-based private equity firm Summit Park, is pleased to announce that it has acquired certain assets comprising the metal building business of Bebco Industries, Inc. Headquartered in Hitchcock, TX, Bebco has over 45 years of experience manufacturing heavy-gauge metal buildings for applications across the industrial, chemical and energy end markets.
"This acquisition encompasses all of the Bebco Industrial Housing and Access Solutions product lines, which include buildings fabricated from 12-18 gauge galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum or fiberglass construction, as well as structural steel flooring systems and blast resistant building products," said Bill Estep, CEO of Parkline. Estep, continued, "The addition of the Bebco Industries product lines to Parkline's product offering of 18-24 gauge metal buildings, which may be site erected or modular constructed, arguably creates one of the industry's most diverse and flexible product portfolios. With two significant fabrication, assembly and systems integration facilities, one of which is strategically located with port access, this acquisition enhances our ability to provide exceptional value to more customer applications across a greatly expanded geography."
Parkline, based in Charleston, WV, is a leading specialist in industrial building applications. The company manufactures highly engineered, site-erected and modular metal buildings for utility, energy and general industrial applications and operates a significant fabrication, assembly and systems integration facility located just outside of Charleston, WV.
"We are very pleased to acquire the metal building assets from Bebco. Our investment thesis has always been to expand geographically and expand Parkline's capabilities. This acquisition accomplishes both, and we look forward to combining forces and building on each company's historical success," said Bob Calton, Managing Partner at Summit Park.
Senior financing for the transaction was provided by Byline Bank.
