Advanced Energy Capital provided $2,500,000 of funding for Alpine 4 Technologies, Ltd. (Alpine) to close on their latest acquisition of Deluxe Sheet Metal Inc. Deluxe is a company that has been in business for over 45 years, specializing in all aspects of Commercial and Industrial Sheet Metal installations. Servicing top research institutions like the University of Norte Dame and large companies like GE, Deluxe is the go-to company for complex thermal and HVAC design in their region. Completed in 2004, Deluxe’s facility is home to a 59,000-square-foot building purposefully tucked away into a hillside on South Bend’s northwest side. Within their building is a 35,000 square foot fabrication shop filled with skilled Union craftsmen and some of the latest in modern equipment and advanced technologies giving Deluxe the abilities to meet some of the most arduous demands of today’s complex construction projects. The facility is one of the most modern operations in the area.
The closing of this transaction represents the second acquisition AEC has financed for Alpine 4 Technologies. AEC delivered the working capital to help close the deal and support the growth of Deluxe as the business continues to expand its operations.
“Our terrific experience with AEC as our current financing partner on our prior acquisition made it an easy decision to work with them again on our acquisition of Deluxe.” Kent B. Wilson, CEO of Alpine 4. “AEC’s dedication and support for our vision continues to help us achieve growth, value and stability for our employees and shareholders.”
“Kent has continued to successfully demonstrate his ability acquire, operate and integrate businesses under the Alpine umbrella. We look forward to continuing to work with him and his team as he continues to execute on his business plan.” said Richard Rudy, Principal and Co-Founder of AEC. “The size of this deal is right in our sweet spot,” said Jack Doueck, AEC’s other principal and Co-Founder. “We have had a busy year in 2019 and we are looking forward to a huge 2020, thanks to clients like Deluxe.”
