Steelite International

The Homer Laughlin China Company (the “Company” or “Homer”) is an industry leading U.S. manufacturer of high quality dinnerware products and tabletop accessories for the food service industry. Homer is also known for it’s award winning Fiesta Dinnerware product line throughout the food service and retail markets. MelCap Partners, LLC served as Homer’s exclusive investment banker and financial advisor in the sale of the Company’s food service division. In order to focus on the continued growth and expansion of its Retail Division, including its Fiesta product line, Homer made a strategic decision to divest it’s food service division. As a result, MelCap sold Homer’s food service division to Steelite International (“Steelite”), a leading manufacturer and supplier of tabletop and buffet products for the global hospitality industry. Steelite is a portfolio company of Arbor Investments, which is a Chicago-based private equity firm focused on the food & beverage industry.
