Winchester Acquires Bomar
Winchester Electronics Corporation, a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity, completed the acquisition of Bomar Interconnect Products. Headquartered in Ledgewood, N.J., Bomar is a producer of RF connectors for the RF, video, broadcast, wireless, and related markets. The acquisition of Bomar expands Winchester’s OEM relationships in the broadcast market and provides a complementary BNC product line for board-mounted applications.
Winchester, based in Middlebury, Conn., is a designer and manufacturer of connectivity solutions, including connectors and cable assemblies, for diversified markets, including medical, military, energy and power, broadcast, and ruggedized industrial, among others. Since being acquired by Audax in June 2006, Winchester has completed six add-on acquisitions, including Continental Connector Company of Hatfield, Pa. in May of 2013; Clements National Company of Broadview, Ill. in August of 2012; Electrical Specialty Products of Spartanburg, S.C. in July of 2012; Kings Electronics Corporation of Rock Hill, S.C. in May of 2007; and Advanced Interconnect of Franklin, Mass. in April of 2007.
“Winchester is a market-leading provider of interconnect technologies. The acquisition of Bomar diversifies its customer base and product offering,” said Oliver Ewald, managing director of Audax Private Equity. “We will continue to work with Kevin Perhamus and the Winchester team to build the business through new product introductions, global expansion, and strategic add-on acquisitions.”
