Kansas Venture Capital, Jefferson Capital Partners, Capital for Business and InvestAmerica banded together to buy the company, which supplies the locomotive, electrical, appliance, watercraft and ATV industries.

Although financial details of the transactions were not disclosed, Kansas and InvestAmerica both aim to invest between $1m and $2m, with Jefferson and InvestAmerica targeting businesses with minimum revenues approaching $10m.

The company said the funding would also be used to finance product development and provide liquidity to its shareholders.
