Emory & Co., LLC served as the investment banker for Baileigh Industrial, Inc., in its acquisition of Rusch Machine and Design, Inc. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Based in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, Baileigh Industrial designs and manufactures industrial metalworking and woodworking machinery that delivers reliable, precise results over decades of use. Founded in 1999, Baileigh is known for product innovation and customer satisfaction. Its customers range worldwide from large-scale commercial fabrication shops to passionate hobbyists.

Based in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, Rusch Machine and Design (“RMD”), was established in 1998 by Chris and Tracy Rusch. RMD manufactures some of the world’s largest and most renowned lines of tube and pipe benders, notchers, press brakes, welding positioners, bead rollers, as well as an array of metal shaping machinery and power hammers.

“RMD is highly synergistic acquisition for Baileigh—a perfect fit in many ways,” said John Emory Jr., President of Emory & Co.

The partnership will expand Baileigh’s product offerings, allowing its customers to choose from an even wider selection of unique American-made machines. The combination also supports Baileigh’s strategic expansion into Russia, Asia, Latin America, the South Pacific Rim, and further into Europe.
