Officials for The Stephens Group announced last month that the company has finalized acquisition of Sound Seal Holdings Inc., though it did not disclose the terms of the transaction.

Sound Seal, based in Agawam, Mass., is a manufacturer of acoustical noise control solutions and offers products including soundproof doors and windows, noise curtains and barriers, fabric-wrapped wall panels and enclosures. The company works collaboratively with acoustical consultants, architects, designers, industrial contractors and building owners to address a range of noise control applications across industrial, architectural, medical, retail, entertainment and other end-markets.

“We are very excited to add Sound Seal to our portfolio of world class companies,” said Clay Hunter, managing director at The Stephens Group. “Sound Seal is a leader in their industry with a strong and experienced management team in place. There are a number of long-term, systemic forces driving adoption of noise control products in almost every industry, and Sound Seal’s highly engineered products, scale, solutions-oriented reputation and its customer-centric culture uniquely position the company for success in this rapidly growing industry.”

Joe Lupone, CEO for Sound Seal, said his company’s team “could not be more excited” to move forward with new ownership.

“The Stephens Group provides Sound Seal with much more than just capital,” Lupone said. “Their value-added approach to enabling organic and acquisitive growth will help us achieve our strategic vision and build long-term value without the timeline constraints of a traditional private equity investor.”
