Fine Tubes, Ltd. & Superior Tube Co., Inc.

Where others saw:

Two independently operated metal tube manufacturers, located on opposite sides of the Atlantic, held back from meeting the demands of the market by their substantial production bottlenecks

We envisioned:

A combined global entity which leads the market in flawless, high-performance metal tubes; one that proactively anticipates market needs and is deeply valued by customers for making zero-default products for quickly growing end markets

Watermill:

  • Unlocked synergies between these two complementary specialists in elite metals
  • Prioritized research and development
  • Improved manufacturing operations
  • Increased production capacity
  • Accelerated global growth

We implemented our strategy and exited the investment to a strategic buyer for a significant return on invested capital.
