Lincoln International (“Lincoln”), a leading global mid-market investment bank, is pleased to announce that Anomatic Corporation (“Anomatic” or the “Company”) has been sold to Thyssen’sche Handelsgesellschaft m.b.H. (“THG”), a German strategic holding company. Anomatic was a portfolio company of Brookstone Partners (“Brookstone”). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Since the Company’s founding in 1965, Anomatic has pioneered the use of anodized aluminum in the cosmetics and beauty market. Today, the Company is the leading global producer of anodized aluminum packaging solutions for the world’s most recognized cosmetic and beauty companies. Anomatic is regarded for proprietary, full-service production capabilities, which enable the Company to provide unlimited color options to match customers’ unique requirements. With four, state-of-the-art, strategically located facilities in the U.S. and China and vertically integrated capabilities across tooling/design, stamping, anodizing and assembly, Anomatic has developed long-standing, highly integrated relationships with the most notable companies in the cosmetics and beauty market, who value the Company’s technical and service expertise, best-in-class execution and partnership approach across the complete product life cycle.

THG owns a wide range of production and trading businesses throughout the world, including Thomas Group (“Thomas”), a manufacturer of metal components. Anomatic and Thomas offer complementary products and services, and it is expected that Anomatic’s customers will benefit from THG’s strategic investment.

Scott Rusch, CEO of Anomatic, commented, “Lincoln’s extensive packaging experience, deep relationships with key strategic and financial acquirers and comprehensive understanding of our business model enabled them to share our story and value proposition in a highly compelling manner. The investment from THG will further enhance Anomatic’s position as the worldwide leader in anodized aluminum packaging to the cosmetics and beauty industries and presents significant opportunities for our customers as we make new investments in technologies to expand capabilities.”

Michael Toporek, Managing General Partner at Brookstone, added, “Lincoln’s global platform, industry experience and process expertise were critical in securing an exceptional long-term partner for Anomatic. The Company has a very exciting future ahead, and we wish Anomatic and its team continued success.”

Lincoln acted as the exclusive investment banking representative for Brookstone and Anomatic, working closely with the Company’s management team and shareholders throughout the sale process. This included providing advisory expertise and managing the preparatory, marketing, negotiation and due diligence phases of the transaction.
