DFW Grating, Inc.
DFW Grating, Inc. (“DFW” or the “Company”) is a leading manufacturer and fabricator of bar, diamond and round hole safety grating products, primarily for rail and industrial applications. The Company offers a full line of products and solutions ranging from one-off custom orders to mass quantity OEM product runs. Founded in 2003, DFW is one of only a few American Association of Railroads approved manufacturers of welded steel bar grating in North America.
DFW has aggressively invested in expanding its capabilities and capacity and today occupies 113,000 square feet of manufacturing space strategically located in Dallas, Texas. SSG was retained by DFW as its exclusive investment banker to explore strategic alternatives including a refinancing of the existing indebtedness to fund future initiatives or a sale of the business.
SSG conducted a comprehensive marketing process and contacted potential lenders, investors and strategic acquirers to achieve an optimal outcome for the Company and its stakeholders. Ultimately, a sale of substantially all of the Company’s assets to Powerbrace was determined to be the best alternative.
