The Deal

The acquisition of PPG will allow Marcone, a leading residential appliance parts distributor and portfolio company of Genstar Capital, to horizontally integrate and expand its product expertise and offering into the plumbing industry. Marcone is excited to add PPG’s well known, trusted brands to its portfolio and benefit from the increased spending on plumbing products from consumers, technicians and larger strategic accounts.

Our Perspective

Brad Keyworth, Managing Director in Lincoln’s Business Services Group, who leads the firm’s distribution sector coverage, commented on the transaction and current market dynamics; “PPG has established a strong presence in the highly attractive repair and remodel segment of the $46 billion plumbing products industry, providing the company with a significant, resilient addressable market. PPG differentiates itself through its unique product portfolio, combining valuable proprietary and third-party brands, comprehensive market coverage through a multi-channel strategy and asset-light business model with extensive distribution capabilities. PPG makes a compelling add-on to Marcone, especially as Marcone expands its own platform from appliance parts into other product categories, including plumbing products.”
