Industrial Growth Partners Acquires Prince & Izant

Industrial Growth Partners, in partnership with management, has acquired The Prince & Izant Company and its affiliated entities and subsidiaries (collectively referred to as “P&I” or the “Company”).


Headquartered in Cleveland, OH, P&I provides highly-engineered brazing alloys in various forms (ring, wire, rod, strip, band, washer, disc, paste, amongst others), as well as kits and flux, delivering specified and precise products for critical and demanding applications in the aerospace & defense, space, medical, electronics, HVACR, and other industrial markets.  P&I is an engineering- and customer-centric business, differentiated through its material science expertise, consultative and technical sales approach, short lead times, tight tolerances, and reputation for quality.


“IGP was the preferred partner for me and my family as we explored the possibility of a sale,” commented Matt Brandenburg, CEO of P&I.  “IGP’s longstanding expertise in helping transform middle-market family-run businesses stood out to us as a true differentiator.  We are confident that with IGP’s assistance, we will continue to grow Prince & Izant into a global leader of specialty engineered materials.”
