J.F. Lehman & Company, a middle-market private equity firm focused on the maritime, defense and aerospace sectors, announced today that it has sold its portfolio company, Northeast Ship Repair, Inc. to affiliates of Plexus Capital and NewSpring Capital.

The sale of Northeast Ship Repair follows J.F. Lehman's recent sales of ACR Electronics and Drew Marine, both announced on November 19.

With facilities in Boston and Philadelphia, Northeast Ship Repair operates two of the drydocks on the East and Gulf Coasts capable of servicing vessels in excess of 750 feet in length. Northeast Ship Repair was acquired in 2008.

We appreciate the fine efforts of all involved and are confident that Plexus and NewSpring have acquired a great platform for future growth.”
