Here is the MiBiz Growth Report for March 5, 2018:

• M&A: After nearly doubling the business over the last two and a half years, the private equity owners of Action Fabricators Inc. decided the market timing was right to find a partner to take the company to the next level. Last week, Chattanooga, Tenn.-based River Associates Investments LLC announced it had sold the Grand Rapids-based manufacturer of adhesive-backed products for the automotive and medical device industry to Boyd Corp. of Modesto, Calif. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Action Fabricators grew revenues from around $45 million in 2015 to nearly $80 million at the time of the sale. President and CEO Jon Rudolph and the rest of the management team will stay on with the new owners. Boyd is a portfolio company of San Francisco-based Genstar Capital. Milwaukee, Wis.-based Robert W. Baird & Co. represented Action Fabricators in the deal.
