In a joint statement, Carlyle and BC Partners said, “Neodyne has consistently achieved best-in-class performance in its highly engineered products, and we are excited about the company’s continued growth prospects, especially in high-value product segments and emerging markets. We believe the combination of our resources and expertise, the company’s experienced leadership and the continued growth trends in the energy, chemicals and industrials sectors will help us achieve a successful future for Neodyne as an independent global company.”
