The transaction, which took place in 2021, further advances Arnold’s strategic priorities to deliver new materials and engineered solutions that empower customers to develop next generation technologies, the company said. By acquiring Ramco, Arnold expands an already diverse product offering with industry leading electric motor solutions capabilities. In addition, Ramco brings deep relationships with a number of strategic customers that utilize its capabilities in applications across various markets including industrial, military and aerospace.

“With the acquisition of an industry leader like Ramco, Arnold is continuing to execute its strategy to become a leading technology-based, engineering solutions company,” said Elias Sabo, CEO of Compass Diversified, parent company of Arnold. “Arnold and Ramco are naturally complementary businesses and, together, are more competitive in the marketplace – offering significant opportunity to gain market share and acquire new customers. We look forward to partnering with the Arnold and Ramco teams to integrate their capabilities and realize the full benefits of this transaction, and we remain confident in the future of Arnold’s business.”
