Dickson is a prime example of how May River’s specialized sector knowledge, deep operational experience, and leadership can create significant value in a previously entrepreneur-owned company.
Dickson offers highly specialized testing instrumentation, services, and software focused on environmental monitoring solutions for highly-regulated end markets. The company has a diverse customer base, which includes leading companies operating in healthcare, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, and medical device end markets.
The opportunity to grow Dickson came as a result of May River’s executive-led sourcing process in the Test & Measurement Instrumentation (TMI) sector. In a partnership with industry executive, Rick Weiler, May River started searching for a potential acquisition in Fall 2017 and closed on the Dickson investment in April 2018. Dickson’s former owner ran the company for over thirty years but was no longer involved with day-to-day operations.
