Ravinia Capital is pleased to announce the successful sale of a manufacturer of precision rollers for use in commercial and industrial printing systems

Ravinia Capital LLC, a Chicago-based boutique investment bank specializing in sell-side M&A advisory for middle market companies, is pleased to announce the sale of Rotational Dynamics Corporation, doing business as RotaDyne, to Finzer Roller, Inc.

RotaDyne manufactures and services sophisticated, custom precision rollers for use in complex web-fed and sheet-fed printing processes, worldwide, and was looking to partner with another major industry player that would take full advantage of its long history, reputation, and experience in manufacturing high quality products to create one of the largest and most well-respected roller companies in the U.S. The COVID-19 pandemic posed a significant challenge to the process, but Ravinia was able to identify the best-fit acquiring party and maintain momentum throughout the transaction, despite this year’s unprecedented disruptions and record uncertainty.

The acquisition of RotaDyne adds five additional manufacturing plants on top of the seven already owned by Finzer Rollers and represents a significant increase in the company’s capacity for production of high-precision, rubber and urethane industrial rollers for global markets.
