Ohio Companies Unite to Create Industrial Construction Company

Henry A. Selinsky Inc., Selinsky Bros. Inc., Meredith Erectors Inc., and Hammond Industrial Construction today announced that the companies have joined forces to become the Selinsky FORCE, a single-source provider of industrial rigging and hauling, equipment rental, construction, refractory service and plant maintenance.

Under the new identity and ownership by Excel Capital Partners, the four companies are positioned for growth as the premier provider of industrial construction services in the region. Leadership at the four companies remains the same, and there will be no staff reductions as a result of the merger and renaming.

Beginning in mid-February, corporate offices for the new company will be located in North Canton, Ohio. The new location will centralize activities for the different business segments for more efficient operation and future expansion.

Operation as one entity also enables industrial customers to achieve greater efficiencies by taking advantage of the experience and diverse portfolio now offered. “As Selinsky Force, the depth of our industrial capabilities and services is unmatched in the region,” said John Selinsky, president of the Selinsky Force. “With the new name, we are conveying the reality that we are a force to be reckoned with.”

As the Selinsky Force, the four industrial service providers are able to expand their geographical reach beyond Ohio and the bordering states, more effectively cross-sell services and position the company for future expansion.

Excel Capital Partners is a private equity group dedicated to innovative value investing in the smaller end of the middle market sectors of manufacturing, value-added distribution and select business services.
