Middle-market investment bank Jordan Knauff & Company (JKC) is pleased to announce that it has been named a Finalist in three categories for the 21st Annual M&A Advisor Awards for its work with Preco, Inc. (Preco) and Ácies Group LLC (Ácies). The final winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in New York City on November 15. The Finalists will be judged by an independent panel of industry experts.
JKC was named a Finalist in the following categories:
- For its work in the acquisition of Preco by Argosy Private Equity
- 2022 Industrials Deal of the Year ($25 million to $50 million)
- 2022 Private Equity Deal of the Year ($25 million to $50 million)
- For its work in the capital raise for Ácies Fund II, L.P.
- 2022 Equity Financing Deal of the Year
Preco is an innovative designer and manufacturer of advanced manufacturing and automation systems, as well as a provider of process development and contract manufacturing services. With operations in Lenexa, Kansas; Somerset, Wisconsin; and Nås, Sweden; Preco manufactures advanced automation systems that utilize industrial laser processing systems, flat bed and rotary die cutting systems, and material handling automation to achieve increased precision and throughput while providing labor and material savings for its customers.
Ácies formed Ácies Fund II, L.P. (the Fund) to finance the acquisition of industrial service facilities in the Midwest and Southeast. Based in Markham, Illinois, Ácies is a real estate investment firm specializing in logistics properties. The Fund was formed to capitalize on an investment philosophy within specific, institutionally-overlooked subcategories of logistics real estate that stand at the center of e-commerce growth in the United States. The Fund targets three subcategories of logistics real estate that are critical components of the overloaded “middle mile” and “last mile” of the e-commerce supply chain – flex warehouses, regional distribution centers and industrial service facilities.
“These Finalist recognitions highlight JKC’s creative solutions and unmatchable experience in the middle-market. We are immensely proud of both the Preco and Ácies transactions and the teams who worked on them,” stated Mr. G. Cook Jordan, Jr., Co-founder and Managing Principal at JKC.
