CGI Automated Manufacturing Acquires Elite Manufacturing Technologies

CORE Industrial Partners, a manufacturing, industrial technology and industrial services-focused private equity firm, announced the acquisition of Elite Manufacturing Technologies, a supplier of precision sheet metal components and assemblies, by CORE portfolio company CGI Automated Manufacturing (CGI). Elite is the sixth add-on acquisition to the CGI platform that CORE launched in August 2021.

Founded in 1991, Elite specializes in manufacturing cabinets, consoles and electro-mechanical assemblies for the electronic gaming industry. The company also provides components and final or near-final enclosures for a variety of other end markets, including medical, telecommunications, food service and industrial equipment.

"Elite combines value-added design engineering services with broad in-house primary fabrication capabilities, including laser cutting, punching, shearing, blanking, forming and welding and finishing operations, including powder coating and silk-screening, to serve as a one-stop shop for customers seeking both high quality and quick lead times. Elite's state-of-the-art equipment and automation allow the company to focus on efficient production of complex components and assemblies while holding tight tolerances," said a company spokesperson.

Headquartered outside Chicago in Bloomingdale, IL, Elite operates two facilities totaling 145,000 sq. ft. and holds ISO 9001 and NSF certifications.

Matthew Puglisi, Partner at CORE, said, "The acquisition of Elite aligns with the key tenets of our investment thesis focused on providing differentiated and automated precision manufacturing solutions to industry-leading customers in fast-growing end markets. Notably, Elite's proprietary product design offering is a compelling addition to the CGI platform."

Carey Chen, Chief Executive Officer of CGI, said, "Elite's comprehensive metal fabrication capabilities and investments in cutting-edge material handling automation for 24/7 production are a natural fit with CGI and augment the platform's capacity and customer value proposition. We are looking forward to collaborating with our neighbors and new colleagues in the western suburbs of Chicago."

Jim Conlon, President of Elite, said, "Over the last 30 years, Elite has developed a strong reputation for the utmost in product design, innovation and quality, especially in the rapidly growing electronic gaming industry. Now, with the benefit of additional resources and strategic support, we could not be more excited to partner with CGI and CORE to accelerate our already explosive growth trajectory."
