MSC US N.W. Pacific Asset Acquired by US Joiner

Sunday, September 30, 2012

The purchases by US Joiner affiliates, furniture providers, enable establishment of an office and factory in the US Pacific Northwest.

US Joiner is a leading independent domestic provider of turnkey marine joiner and furniture solutions for U.S. Government and commercial customers. Headquartered in Crozet, VA, the company employs approximately 500 employees across the United States.

Joe Mullen, President of US Joiner, said, "The purchase of these assets from MSC is an excellent addition to US Joiner and a highly complementary fit.  We look forward to expanding our presence and capabilities in the Pacific Northwest to better serve our existing customers as well as the broader marine marketplace in this region.  In addition, the cruise market expertise that comes with this acquisition will grow our presence in this large and expanding industry sector.”
 
US Joiner was acquired in June 2011 by J.F. Lehman & Company, a leading middle-market private equity firm focused on the maritime, defense, and aerospace sectors.
 
Feil, Pettit & Williams, PLC provided legal counsel to US Joiner.
