By Generational Equity


Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately held businesses, is pleased to announce the sale of its client CCL Acquisition, LLC (dba Custom Components & Logistics) to HKR. The transaction closed October 12, 2022. 

Located in Catoosa, Oklahoma, Custom Components & Logistics (CC&L) manufactures quality custom stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum electrical enclosures and industrial control panel enclosures delivered with excellent customer service to major markets throughout the U.S. and overseas. 

Additionally, the Company provides precision metal stamping, machining, tool and die and custom fabrication to customer specifications. CC&L differentiates itself in numerous ways including superior accuracy, timelines, problem-solving abilities, and customized solutions, from design to prototype to production. For over 40 years, the employees at CC&L have been dedicated to quality, innovation, and customer service, providing component parts that meet or exceed its customers’ expectations.

CC&L was majority owned by Sandy Brumley (President) with minority partners William Martinson (Non-Operating Member) and Billy Babb (Non-Operating Member). John Johnson, General Manager, who has led CC&L historically, will continue his role going forward. Mr. Johnson was the key person working with Generational Equity during this M&A process.

HKR, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a holding company formed to acquire CC&L. The owners of HKR are Bob Haiges, Don Kirkland, and Fred Raschen. All three partners have established histories of entrepreneurship, investing, and owning multiple businesses.

Don Ho, Managing Director Mergers & Acquisitions with Generational Equity, was the lead deal maker on the transaction. Ho, with the support of Generational Equity Executive Managing Director of M&A – Central Region,  Michael Goss, and Vice President, M&A,  Jacob Mangalath, successfully closed the deal. Senior Managing Director,  DeWayne Nelon, established the original relationship with CC&L.

“We are very pleased to be able to achieve our client’s goal of selling the business and commercial property to a buyer that shares the same values and culture with CC&L. With John Johnson leading the business, coupled with the buyers’ experience and resources, the future is incredibly bright for them,” said Mr. Ho. 

Ho added, “Though CC&L has experienced phenomenal growth recently, we believe the business is well positioned for accelerated growth. We’re deeply honored that Mrs. Brumley and her partners put their trust in us to represent their business and interest.” 

John Johnson stated, “It comes with a great deal of respect for Generational Equity, and specifically Don Ho, for the superior level of professionalism, knowledge, skill, and expertise provided and shown throughout this process. Without Don and Generational Equity, the sales experience of Custom Components & Logistics would not have been possible, and for that, we thank you!”
