Brammall  Supply acquired by JCT Industries

JCT Industries of Grand Rapids, Michigan, acquired Benton Harbor, Michigan-based Brammall Supply Inc.

JCT is an affiliate of Grand Rapids-based Nemic Inc. Brammall Supply will continue to operate as an independent company.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Brammall Supply was advised by Calder Capital LLC in Grand Rapids.

Founded in 1873 and owned by the Ankli family since 1940, Brammall Supply is one of the oldest industrial distributors in Michigan. The company has served a wide variety of industries over the years, concentrating most recently on cutting tools and abrasives for the metal working industry. 

“After lengthy deliberations, we made the difficult decision to transition our family owned business to new ownership. After signing with Calder Capital, we were presented with and considered numerous inquiries and offers from different types of buyers. While we had the opportunity to sell to larger companies, ultimately we made the decision to sell to Nemic Industrial Supply. Nemic has a similar history of being family owned and client centric. Their decision to keep Brammall as an independent entity that will continue to serve its clients locally was an important factor in our decision,” said Ken Ankli, former president of Brammall Supply Company.
