Good Sportsman Marketing Acquires HME Products
Detroit, MI – October 18, 2016 – Huron Capital Partners LLC (“Huron Capital”) today announced Dallas-based Good Sportsman Marketing (“GSM”), its hunting accessories platform, has acquired Minn.-based HME Products, LLC (“HME”). This is the first add-on acquisition since Huron Capital’s investment in the platform in June.
Founded in 2000, HME designs and distributes a variety of tools that assist hunters in the field, including accessory hooks, deer gambrels and drags, tree-stand accessories, gloves and other related products. The company distributes its products through a mix of sporting goods, farm & fleet, e-commerce and specialty retailers across the U.S.
“The acquisition of HME will add a variety of products that we expect to be highly complementary to our lineup,” said Eddie Castro, CEO of GSM. “HME has an excellent reputation for high quality hunting accessories. We look forward to building on that reputation as we invest in new product development to drive growth in the category and enhance the hunting experience for consumers.”
Sean Roberts, Principal at Huron Capital, added, “We believe HME is a great fit for GSM, and we are pleased to complete this add-on acquisition so soon after our initial investment in GSM. We are excited to work with the GSM team to pursue additional acquisitions and other growth initiatives as we seek to build out the GSM platform.”
