ELLWOOD Acquires McInnes Rolled Rings


[Ellwood City, PA - April 1, 2019] ELLWOOD Group, Inc. has acquired McInnes Rolled Rings, producer of seamless carbon, alloy, and stainless-steel rolled rings, in a transaction which closed on March 31. McInnes, located in Erie, PA, will operate as an independent but wholly owned subsidiary of ELLWOOD and operations proceed without interruption.

The purchase of McInnes, a market leader in high quality, low cost, short lead time rolled rings, fits ELLWOOD’s strategy to provide world-class problem solving, quality metals, and custom-engineered components for critical applications around the world, said ELLWOOD CEO Ben Huffman. “McInnes’ capabilities complement and expand ELLWOOD’s current footprint in the rolled rings market. As a longstanding customer of ours, we recognize the knowledge, expertise, and experience that McInnes brings to the table. We are excited to welcome the McInnes team to the ELLWOOD family. Our private status, long-term perspective, and owners’ commitment to reinvestment will enable us to support McInnes’ future growth.”

McInnes CEO, Tim Hunter, and his management team continue to lead McInnes as a stand-alone entity. “As we looked to grow as a business we identified ELLWOOD as a partner we wanted to work with. We are excited to join ELLWOOD and look forward to continuing what we do best at McInnes: high quality rolled rings, delivered quickly and on time,” said Hunter. “We have a great team in place and ELLWOOD’s investment enables us to continue to develop our people, technology and equipment right here in Erie, expanding our ability to meet our customers’ needs.”
