AOTCO Metal Finishing, a national leader in specialty finishing services, announced its strategic acquisition of Connecticut-based Modern Metal Finishing (MMF), further enhancing AOTCO's portfolio with MMF's expert anodizing services.
This acquisition advances AOTCO's targeted growth strategy, building on a series of successful past acquisitions and underscoring the company's commitment to becoming a comprehensive national finishing partner for advanced manufacturers.
For customers in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, the acquisition offers a compelling benefit. “Customers tell us that local pickup and delivery service helps save time and money,” commented Matt Smith, AOTCO’s President. “MMF will serve as a distribution hub, giving customers throughout the Tri-State area access to local pickup and delivery both for AOTCO’s electroplating and MMF’s anodizing services.”
The companies are also very similar, Smith observed. "AOTCO and MMF share a commitment to customer collaboration, superior quality, and quick turnarounds. MMF's top-tier anodizing capabilities, coupled with their commitment to best-in-class environmental practices, align closely with our own values and high standards."
AOTCO and MMF will continue to operate at their existing locations, retaining their employees and management teams to ensure the seamless integration and continuity of service for customers.
"We are excited to join the AOTCO family,” said Paul Decerbo, MMF’s General Manager. “Our customers stand to gain substantially from this integration, which extend our footprint, enrich our service offering, and elevate our position as a trusted partner in our industry."
