P&F INDUSTRIES, INC. ACQUIRES BUSINESS OF JACKSON GEAR COMPANY
MELVILLE, N.Y., January 18, 2022 -
P&F Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: PFIN) announced that effective January 15, 2022, through a wholly owned subsidiary of Hy-Tech Machine, Inc., it acquired substantially all the non-real estate assets comprising the business of Jackson Gear Company, a Pennsylvania-based corporation that manufactures and distributes custom gears and power transmission gear products. The purchase price consisted of an aggregate of $2.3 million in cash and the assumption of certain payables and obligations.
Richard Horowitz, P&F's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am extremely pleased to announce the acquisition of the Jackson Gear business. This acquisition further expands our gear product offerings to an even broader range of industries. In addition, the acquired knowledge and equipment will allow Hy-Tech’s Power Transmission Group, or PTG, to offer among the largest gears available in the marketplace, which is a great differentiator. This really enhances the value of PTG to all current and potential customers. We believe that consolidating the operations of the acquired business within PTG operations throughout the next six to twelve months should generate cost reductions and other efficiencies as well. We expect the added revenue will more than double the size of our current PTG business. This transaction is another meaningfully strategic step for the Company, as we continue to expand our offerings in the air tools and related accessories market."
