Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are a critical part of the Rexnord growth strategy. With a heritage more than 100 years in the making, since 2005, we have invested nearly $2 billion in our M&A strategy, adding approximately $1 billion of sales across all of our businesses. We continually look to expand our portfolio through M&A activities. Our strategy is to build around multiple, global strategic platforms that participate in end-markets with sustainable growth characteristics where we are, or have the opportunity to become, the industry leader.
Philosophies Guiding Our M&A Strategy:
- Accelerate our core revenue growth through entry to new end markets or channels
- Strengthen the base businesses through product, channel or geographic expansion
- Create opportunity to innovate faster than could be acheived internally
- Diversify our base business to sustain growth over an economic cycle
We are actively seeking qualified acquisition candidates in a variety of industries
Rexnord seeks leading manufacturing or industrial service companies in attractive markets, with businesses that will benefit from the Rexnord Business System (RBS), used to achieve world-class customer satisfaction, revenue growth and operating margins.
We buy and invest in companies for the future, with a focus on growing segments. We are committed to the continued development of our acquisitions. We help the organizations grow and diversify globally through our extensive international sales network and make them an integral part of Rexnord.
Future for Employees
Selling to an owner committed to growing the business over the long term offers a degree of stability and security to a workforce that other buyers may not be able to offer. Over the last decade, approximately 50% of the Rexnord workforce has joined us through acquisitions. Many of these associates have subsequently moved-up, filling key roles within Rexnord.
Entrepreneurial Spirit Within Rexnord
We've grown with successful, innovative businesses often started by entrepreneurs who closely value their customers, services and brands. Rexnord is similarly built around serving the customer first, collaborating with them on an ongoing basis. By listening to our customers, we continue to keep this entrepreneurial spirit alive.
Efficient Diligence Process
Rexnord takes a pragmatic approach to the due diligence process, with the goal of exchanging information in the most efficient manner and with the least disruption to the day-to-day business. We manage this process with an internal and external team with significant transaction experience and a successful track record of collaboration. We keep an open dialogue throughout the process and understand limitations businesses may face, finding alternate and creative ways to reach positive outcomes.
