O2 Investment Partners and Alpha Sintered Metals have invested in Precision Compacted Components (PCC), a producer of sintered metal products headquartered in Wilcox, Pennsylvania, USA. This is the second investment by Alpha this year, following the acquisition of Precision Made Products in May 2016.

Alpha Sintered Metals, Precision Compacted Components, and Precision Made Products will remain individual entities, but together form Alpha Precision Group (APG). PCC's current leadership team will continue with their managerial and operational responsibilities.

Established in 1994, PCC is a leading producer of sintered metal products, used primarily in automotive Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and Variable Cam Timing (VCT) systems. With operations in Wilcox and St. Marys, Pennsylvania, PCC has a strong history of growth, achieved by producing exceptional solutions for customers using state-of-the-art equipment and technology.

‘PCC is a highly regarded supplier in the variable valve timing (VVT) and variable cam timing (VCT) market segment,’ said JoAnne Ryan, CEO of Alpha Precision Group. ‘Alpha Sintered Metals is primarily focused on providing products that are consistent with reducing emissions, improving fuel economy, and enhancing engine performance, thus making PCC an ideal strategic fit.’
