VORTEQ Coil Finishers (VORTEQ), a leading service provider in the coil coating industry, has recently acquired the California coil coating assets (MSC-LA) of Material Sciences Corporation (MSC). This acquisition marks VORTEQ’s sixth add-on acquisition in the past eight years and is set to enhance the company’s presence in the Western United States, particularly in the manufacture of specialty coated metals. Established in 1982, MSC-LA, located near Los Angeles, is recognized for its standout customer service and product quality, catering to a broad range of clients. The acquisition details were not disclosed. According to Jim Dockey, VORTEQ’s Chief Executive Officer, adding MSC-LA to VORTEQ will enhance the company’s product capabilities, including offering wider and heavier gauge products and value-added secondary processing services. This strategic move is intended to bolster VORTEQ’s market reach and continue delivering exemplary service and quality to the existing and potential customer base. Pat Murley, CEO of MSC, lauded the performance of the MSC-LA team over the last five years under MSC’s leadership and expressed confidence in the team’s continued success under VORTEQ. The acquisition contributes to VORTEQ’s growing footprint, as it will now operate eleven continuous coil coating lines across North America. Matt Homme, Managing Partner at Shadowbriar Capital Partners—VORTEQ’s private equity backer—stressed that the MSC-LA purchase significantly augments VORTEQ’s capacity within the Western US. Shadowbriar aims to support VORTEQ’s growth trajectory through continued strategic acquisitions. On its part, VORTEQ prides itself on offering a diverse set of metal coil coating services, supported by a geographical and functional spread that caters to a variety of end-use markets.
