Midland Acquires Century Brass

Midland Industries, a portfolio company of Wynnchurch Capital, acquired U.S. plumbing industry distributor Century Brass Products.

Kansas City, Missouri-based Midland Industries acquired Century Brass Products, a distributor of machined brass fittings and valves to the plumbing industry headquartered in Long Island, New York.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Midland is a portfolio company of Wynnchurch Capital, which in June acquired Washington-based residential door distributor Trimlite.

“The acquisition of Century Brass strengthens our team and product offering while expanding our customer base and footprint in the plumbing wholesale space,” Midland CEO John Gerber said. “We welcome Terry Klein and his team to the Midland family and look forward to learning from their years of history and deep product knowledge, enabling us to continue providing our customers a distinct advantage in the marketplace.”

Klein, the vice president of Century Brass, also issued a statement: “We are excited to be part of the Midland family. We’re thrilled to leverage the technology and product offering to our customers, and to utilize the connected network of inventory across the United States.”
