Industrials & Industrial Technologies

Many companies in the industrial sector are focused on earning predictable, recurring revenue while investing in new product lines and pursuing M&A targets to foster growth.

The Industrials team has significant experience across various subsectors within the industrial technology, industrial products and industrial services spaces, including aerospace & defense, test & measurement, distribution, motors, engineering & construction, specialty chemicals, metals and mining services, transportation and logistics and home building. Our Industrials investment banking professionals have advised on more than 100 M&A transactions over their careers with an aggregate transaction value in excess of $80 billion.

Our depth and breadth of knowledge within the sector, significant transaction experience, and broad network of strategic and financial relationships in the U.S. and internationally, means we maximize outcomes and shareholder value for our clients across the diverse industrial sector. Our bankers deliver the focus, insight and judgment gained from over 30 years of combined experience serving clients that include industry leaders, emerging innovators and private equity firms.

Successful industrials companies have placed an emphasis on leveraging their cost base through enhancements in labor productivity and investment in technology. We continue to see substantial M&A activity driven by ongoing consolidation and divestiture by both corporate entities and private equity firms focused on the sector. Several large companies have or are currently considering how to reposition their portfolios with the goal of transitioning from diversified conglomerates to more agile teams focused on higher growth sectors. Cross-border activity continues at a strong pace with US and European players targeting growth markets and new distribution channels, while Asian companies are seeking a combination of new technology and access to mature markets. Japanese companies, in particular, have been among the most active cross-border buyers globally, and GCA Savvian is uniquely positioned to bring high-value advisory services in these situations.

Our team, working across our San Francisco, New York and Tokyo, Mumbai and Shanghai offices, appreciates the business and cultural issues that are required to get deals executed. We consistently work alongside our clients as a trusted partner in M&A and capital raising situations, assisting in maximizing opportunities amidst a shifting industry landscape.
