Alpha Precision Group Acquires Mercury Manufacturing Company

Alpha Precision Group has announced its acquisition of Mercury Manufacturing Company headquartered in Wyandotte, Michigan. With this combination, Alpha Precision Group enhances its presence in the Emission Control, Variable Valve Timing and Variable Cam Timing segments while gaining access to new markets.

Alpha Precision Group (APG) has announced its acquisition of Mercury Manufacturing Company (MMC) headquartered in Wyandotte, Michigan. With this combination, Alpha Precision Group enhances its presence in the Emission Control, Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and Variable Cam Timing (VCT) segments while gaining access to new markets currently served by MMC.

Founded in 1964, MMC has developed superior expertise and established a niche position in the manufacture of specialty valves and mechanical assemblies for the automotive, heavy truck, and HVAC/refrigeration markets. MMC’s turning, machining and automated assembly capabilities complement APG’s existing powder metal and metal injection molded product and process offerings.

JoAnne Ryan, CEO,  Alpha Precision Group commented, “MMC is very highly regarded by its key customers in the engine timing segment where APG also has a strong presence. We are excited to add Mercury’s capabilities to our VVT/VCT and high temperature stainless steel technology and expertise. We believe that the combined organization will create exciting growth opportunities as we continue to scale our business.”

Janice Wiegand, president of MMC commented, “We found an excellent strategic partner with APG, and believe that the combination will create exciting opportunities for the future as we leverage APG’s impressive technology, engineering, product and process infrastructure.”

Jay Hansen, Managing Partner of O2 Investment Partners, added, “After working closely with the talented management teams at both APG and MMC, we are excited about the future for the organization. The strategic fit and talents of the two businesses make this a compelling business combination that will enhance both APG’s and MMC’s ability to serve customers.”

MMC is being rebranded as “APG – Specialty Valve and Machined Products” following the acquisition and will operate as a subsidiary of APG effective immediately.
