Case study

WayneTrail Techologies has been acquired by Lincoln Electric

Lincoln Electric, a fast-growing manufacturer of flexible automated systems used in a wide variety of metal forming, fabrication and joining industries, has acquired WayneTrail Techologies from its private shareholders for US$31 million.

WayneTrail Techologies designs, engineers, manufactures and installs automated equipment used in major manufacturing and assembly companies in North America.

Lincoln Electric is a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of arc welding products, robotic arc welding systems, plasma and oxyfuel cutting equipment, and has a leading position in the brazing and soldering alloys market.

Oaklins' team in Dallas was engaged to sell the company, permitting the primary shareholder to put a formal exit strategy in place for his eventual retirement. Our team generated multiple offers from domestic and international strategic acquirors.
