Advent takes on KKR, TPG, Onex in Gardner Denver auction

29 Nov 2012

Advent International is the latest private equity firm to be linked with a bid for industrial equipment maker Gardner Denver as the sale of the company enters its second round of bidding.

KKR and a partnership between TPG Capital and Onex Corp are also through to the bidding round alongside industrial machinery maker SPX Corp, which is pursuing a potential merger according to Reuters.

Blackstone and Bain Capital previously took part in the auction but did not make it through to the second round, the report said, in a sale that is expected to fetch about $3.5bn.

Gardner was founded in 1859 and makes industrial compressors, blowers, pumps and fuel systems.

The US-based business has 40 manufacturing facilities globally and posted revenues of $2.4bn last year, about two-thirds of which were generated abroad.
