P&M Corporate Finance, LLC (“PMCF”) is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive investment banker to Ventcon, Inc. (“Ventcon” or the “Company”) in its sale of a majority interest to Gallagher-Kaiser Corporation (“Gallagher-Kaiser”).
Headquartered in Allen Park, MI with a new state-of-the-art facility in Jackson, TN, Ventcon is a leading sheet metal mechanical contractor specializing in the fabrication and installation of highly engineered and complex ductwork and ventilation for commercial and industrial HVAC projects. The Company’s in-house fabrication capabilities allow it to service opportunities requiring small light gauge materials to heavy industrial materials.

Gallagher-Kaiser has manufacturing facilities in Detroit and Holly, MI, Jackson, TN, and Georgetown, KY; as well as international offices in Monterrey, Mexico, and Ontario, Canada.

He added, “GK and Ventcon will have the capabilities and proficiencies to design sustainable solutions that meet complex humidification control requirements in spaces like paint shops, battery manufacturing plants, and mission critical data centers.”
Ventcon selected PMCF to serve as its exclusive investment banker. “We greatly appreciate the invaluable assistance provided by Joe Wagner and Jayson Gitt and the rest of the PMCF team.
