Agawam, MA - December 24, 2015

Sound Seal, a leading manufacturer of acoustical and noise control products serving the industrial, architectural, commercial and construction industries, announced today it has acquired the assets of New York based industrial noise control expert IAC Acoustics. This acquisition will further broaden Sound Seal's noise control product and solution offering to its distribution partners as well as expand their reach into additional markets and industry applications. IAC Acoustics will become a division of Sound Seal and continue to offer its noise control system products, including HVAC silencers, acoustic louvers, sound control architectural doors and windows, and sound proof rooms.

"Today's acquisition of IAC Acoustics significantly increases both our manufacturing capabilities and the breadth of products and services available to IAC and Sound Seal customers. IAC Acoustics, in partnership with a very capable group of seasoned noise control distributors, brought the IAC brand to the pre-eminent position it holds today. Sound Seal is committed to building on this position by delivering innovative products and world class service to our customers, our distributor partners and the acoustic consultant community," said Joe Lupone, CEO of Sound Seal.

Sound Seal is an independent company owned by members of its management team and its primary investor, Hamilton Robinson Capital Partners.
