AVON, CONNECTICUT, November 12, 2019 – Ironwood Capital is pleased to announce an exit from its investment in precision manufacturer Numet Machining Techniques (“Numet”), which was sold to Bromford Industries.

Ironwood Capital Managing Director Jim Barra stated, “Ironwood Capital is proud to have partnered with Numet over the past several years.  During our investment period, the Numet management team transformed the business from a components supplier to a value-added partner and trusted resource for its major customers.  Significant investments in people, facilities and production equipment made Numet an attractive strategic asset for potential acquirers, and we think Bromford Industries is a great partner for Numet to continue on its growth trajectory.”
