Absolute Manufacturing, Inc. was founded in 1986 as a manufacturer of precision parts.  The Company specializes in close tolerance machined parts through the use of their multi-axis CNC milling and turning machines.  Other capabilities that Absolute Manufacturing offers include: surface grinding, boring and honing as well as value-added services such as assembly and kitting. 

Roanwell Corporation (Roanwell) will continue doing business under the Absolute Manufacturing name, retain all employees of the former entity and has leased the existing facility.  Roanwell plans to make additional investments in equipment and personnel to further enhance the capabilities of the company to pursue increasingly more complex projects and provide additional value-added services for its customers. 

David Gosselin, Absolute Manufacturing, Inc.'s founder and president, agrees that Roanwell's resources and significant presence in the military and aerospace markets will give both companies the opportunity for faster growth.  Gosselin stated, "Our capabilities complement each other." He added, "Together, we are confident we can become a major force in the rapidly expanding global market for high precision parts."

Managing Director, Doug Smith, George Nova and Vice President, Michael Goss, led the Generational Equity deal team that advised Absolute Manufacturing on the transaction. George Nova stated, "The synergy between the two companies was obvious and led to smooth negotiations."

Founded in 1948, Roanwell Corporation specializes in manufacturing headsets, handsets, microphones, earphones, cords, harnesses, and accessories for military and commercial communications markets. 

The acquisition of Absolute Manufacturing continues Roanwell Corporation's continual growth and expansion program.  "The acquisition of Absolute Manufacturing, Inc. is a key platform for Roanwell to execute its strategy of expanding into engineered close tolerance precision part manufacturing, allowing for growth in our already established aerospace and military markets, as well as expanding into the medical and power industries," said Jonathan LaBarre, President of Roanwell Corporation.
