SC&H Capital Advises Graybill Processing on its Recapitalization by NCK Capital and Graycliff Partners


SC&H Capital, a leading investment bank and advisory firm focused on middle market and growth companies is pleased to announce that Graybill Processing, Inc. was recapitalized recently by a pair of private equity groups, NCK Capital and Graycliff Partners. SC&H Capital served as the exclusive financial advisor to Graybill.

Headquartered in Elizabethtown, PA, Graybill has been a premier recycler of food by-products into top quality, a high-energy animal feed supplement for over 25 years. The Company collects food manufacturing by-products such as packaged candy, raw candy inputs and bakery goods and processes it into quality, high-energy animal feed for hogs, dairy cattle and beef cattle. In addition to its core business, the company also provides logistics and hauling, paper and cardboard recycling, and cocoa shell mulch production.

“It has been a privilege representing Graybill Processing on this transaction, and we are excited to have delivered a successful outcome for the company and its shareholders,” said Matthew Roberson, Director with SC&H Capital. “Graybill represents another marquee manufacturing transaction for SC&H Capital in food & agribusiness, and illustrates private equity’s continued interest in backing high growth companies in this sector.”

“The Graybill partnership with private equity has capitalized the Company to execute on its strategic initiatives and accelerate its future growth,” added Roberson. “We were challenged by our client to find a private equity partner with a similar business philosophy for growth and appreciation for Graybill’s existing culture. The selection of NCK Capital and Graycliff Partners creates a great opportunity for the company’s employees and customers alike, while maintaining its family culture and steadfast focus on quality and customer service.”

“SC&H Capital’s market insights and expertise were invaluable to us during this process,” said Matthew Petersen, President of Graybill. “We considered multiple options for advisors, and were pleased to find an experienced and highly capable team here in the Mid-Atlantic. Roberson and his team provided us with senior level, hands-on guidance, and advice we needed to identify the best cultural and capability fit in a partner. We are thrilled with the results that SC&H Capital delivered.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
