Nick Payne, Senior Vice President of Siena Lending Group, said, “We are very pleased to partner with Paul Haggar and Ray Damrel to execute this leveraged buyout of Specialty Steel Supply. In concert with Paul, Ray and his team, we were able to execute within the rapid timeframe required by Carpenter Technology Group, Specialty’s publicly traded former parent company, and in doing so, crafted a creative structure that consisted of inventory only as collateral at close. We look forward to working with Specialty as they continue to grow their business.”
