SEI MetalTek, Inc. Has Been Recapitalized by Desrosier Capital Partners


HOUSTON, TEXAS (November 10, 2022) – Statesman Corporate Finance, LLC (“Statesman”) is pleased to announce the majority recapitalization of SEI MetalTek, Inc. (“SEI” and/or “the Company”) to an investor group led by Desrosier Capital Partners (“Desrosier Capital”). Statesman served as the exclusive sell-side financial advisors to SEI on the transaction.

SEI is a niche springs manufacturer comprised of three locations – Colonial Spring (Bristol, CT), Hardware Products (Chelsea, MA) and Spring Engineers of Houston (Houston, TX). SEI is a turn-key manufacturer of custom and stock springs, wire forms, and stampings for a wide range of industries. Members of SEI management and the selling shareholders, whose family has owned SEI since its founding in 1966, will remain minority shareholders in the company going forward.

“We are very grateful to the Statesman team for taking the time to fully understand our business and properly position SEI in a manner that optimized a favorable outcome for the ownership, management, and employees. With Statesman’s support, we were able to properly identify and select our ideal partner to take SEI to the next level. Without Statesman’s guidance and streamlined process, we could not have accomplished such a favorable outcome.” Said Kevin Grace, CEO of SEI MetalTek, Inc.
Desrosier Capital has teamed up with Dan Sebastian, a veteran in the springs industry, to work on the investment. Sebastian, who has served in multiple CEO roles with several spring manufacturers including MW Industries, is joining SEI’s Board of Directors and will also serve as a strategic advisor.
