Founded in 1922 and based in southeastern Wisconsin, Arandell Corporation is one of the nation’s leading providers of high-quality catalog and brochure printing, co-mailing, and logistics services with a strategic focus on upscale retailers and well-recognized brands throughout the United States. With over 500 employees, Arandell’s operations include a state-of-the-art prepress department, one of the industry’s most efficient heat-set web pressrooms, and a bindery that includes saddle stitching, perfect binding, and co-mailing capabilities.
For many businesses, 2020 had been a year like no other and Arandell Corporation also needed to navigate through a challenging environment given the Company’s end markets. Promontory Point Capital was engaged by Arandell to advise on financial and strategic alternatives, including facilitating the Company’s emergence from a formal reorganization process. After marketing the business and soliciting interest from an audience which included both strategic parties and private equity firms, an agreement was reached with Saothair Capital Partners, a Pennsylvania-based private equity firm. The acquisition of Arandell Corporation by Saothair Capital Partners was closed during December of 2020.
