1 min read

Kason’s product range includes circular vibratory and centrifugal screeners designed to separate bulk solids materials from solids and slurries, as well as a line of fluid-bed processors for drying, cooling or moisturizing bulk solids. The company serves a range of end-markets including food and dairy, chemical and plastic manufacturers.

Baird Capital partnered with executive Jon Weiner on the acquisition of Kason. Weiner, who previously served as president of Pall Industrial-The Americas, will lead Kason as CEO while Henry Alamzad will continue as president.

“Baird Capital’s successful track record of investing in industrial companies and supporting their growth makes them an excellent partner for Kason,” said Weiner. “I look forward to working with the existing management team to enhance Kason’s reputation as a provider of effective separation solutions.”

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Baird Capital,” said Kason president Henry Alamzad. “We look forward to working with their team to build on our past success and continue to offer the high quality products our customers have come to expect.”

“We have actively followed the process controls industry for several years and believe Kason is a strong business with an established market position,” said Andrew Brickman, partner in Baird Capital’s US Private Equity group. “The team we have built with Jon Weiner and Henry Alamzad positions us to scale the business by developing better penetration in our existing markets, while also looking to expand into international markets.”

Baird Capital is the direct private investment arm of Robert W Baird & Co.
