Managing Director Stephen Crisham and Vice President Mike Meredith led the Generational Equity deal team that advised Disc-Lock on the transaction. 

Mike stated, "This was a unique transaction in that Disc-Lock had developed numerous patented fastening solutions but had a limited marketing and sales function."
