Stern Rubber was founded in 1969 as a manufacturer of compression, injection and transfer molded products, as well as extruded rubber products. Stern specializes in bonding rubber to plastic, metal, and other materials. Industries served are extremely diverse and include: industrial plumbing, power sports, agricultural, and many others. Stern was acquired by Zhongli North America, Inc. (Zhongli), headquartered in Shanghai, China. The acquisition closed on October 26, 2015.
Managing Director Chris Heckert was the GCM M&A advisor for Stern throughout the transaction. He stated, "We had numerous interested buyers throughout our process. Many wanted to relocate this business away from its location in Northern Minnesota, but the client strongly preferred keeping the business, and its jobs, in the community. I'm proud we achieved that important goal."
"With cross border M&A volumes at record levels, we attribute the continued increase in transnational deal making to the new generation of global M&A experts whose intimate knowledge and expertise in the cultural, financial and legal arenas are redefining our industry," says David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor. "The 2016 International M&A Award winners represent the best of the cross border M&A industry in 2015 who earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists."
Brenen Hofstadter, President and Supervising Principal of GCM added, "M&A activity in the mid market continues to be strong and increasing interest from foreign buyers is a part of that growth. We expect foreign buyer interest in our client companies to continue to build into 2016 and beyond. "
