American Securities has completed its acquisition of Metaldyne and all of its global assets from The Carlyle Group and Solus Alternative Asset Management. The acquired company is a global manufacturer of highly engineered metal-based components for light vehicle engine, transmission and driveline applications. Headquartered in Plymouth, MI, Metaldyne has $1 billion in revenue and operates 25 facilities in 13 countries. Carlyle led a group of creditors in the purchase of Metaldyne in October 2009 after the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier that year. Since the 2009 buyout, Metaldyne's revenue has grown by approximately 70 percent and employment by approximately 30 percent.
