Krueger Bearings

Promontory Point Capital is excited to announce another one of our firm's recent client successes.


Krueger Bearings ("Krueger") is a Milwaukee-based manufacturer of high-quality, precision-machined parts for the oil & gas, energy, marine, power generation, and other related industrial markets. Over the Company’s 40+ year history, Krueger Bearings has become known for delivering high-intensity, mission-critical components with the ability to adhere to tight tolerances and short timelines. In addition, the Company has become an expert in babbitt machining establishing Krueger as a preferred provider for babbitt bearings required by large naval specifications. These customers rely on Krueger due to the Company’s reputation for producing reliable, mission-critical parts and deep expertise in a variety of babbitt applications.

As the Company began to plan for its next phase of growth, Krueger Bearings sought to implement a plan allowing for a recapitalization of ownership, while also maintaining the firm's unique culture and independent business structure. PPC was engaged by Krueger Bearings to help evaluate a variety of options that would address the growth goals of the Company, its leadership team, and its ownership group. As part of this engagement, PPC helped the shareholder group and leadership team agree to a transaction structure and then led the evaluation of various financing alternatives to satisfy the desired objectives. A shareholder recapitalization for Krueger Bearings was funded by CIBM Bank during Q1 of 2023 resulting in another successful Done Deal for our firm.

Promontory Point Capital is a Milwaukee-based investment banking firm focused on the needs of Midwestern privately-held businesses. Since being formed in 2004, our firm has led over 175 client engagements including the evaluation of business sale and recapitalization options, the arrangement of debt and equity financing, and the planning and execution of growth strategies involving acquisitions, mergers, and joint ventures. Many inquiries to Promontory Point Capital include business objectives encompassing:

Ownership Planning, including Transition & Liquidity Goals: PPC is frequently introduced to business owners and/or senior management teams when shareholders are interested in learning about their options involving a potential sale of all or a portion of a business. We have arranged numerous transactions involving strategic partners, private equity firms, ESOPs, management buyouts, and other types of shareholder “recaps” including both minority and majority recapitalizations. 


Financing, Refinancing, & Debt Restructuring: PPC is oftentimes referred into situations where a business encounters a funding need that is beyond the comfort zone of a company's existing senior bank lender. PPC has arranged numerous transactions for companies involving senior bank debt, non-bank debt, subordinated debt, sale-leaseback financing, and other forms of institutional funding to support growth, acquisitions, shareholder redemptions, management buyouts, and other corporate initiatives.


Strategic Growth/M&A: Companies that have an interest in growing and expanding via acquisition or strategic joint venture are regularly referred to PPC given our firm's extensive corporate development experience.
