Manufacturing Company Acquired by

Timothy Ouhrabka, Rhode Island Businessperson

Timothy Ouhrabka of Barrington, Rhode Island has acquired “Naturals by Webster” of Westfield, Massachusetts, a leading manufacturer of floral related products sold to major retailers and wholesalers worldwide. Ouhrabka has been involved in manufacturing and related trade associations for almost 20 years and his holding company Naturals Brands, Inc. employs 7 people in the Westfield location.

The transaction was managed by Robert Flynn, Managing Partner, of the East Greenwich, Rhode Island based United Brokers Group LLC and Mia Caetano Johnson, Director of Mergers & Acquisitions. Mr. Flynn has been active in Rhode Island and US manufacturing issues for years. United Brokers Group specializes in manufacturing related acquisitions in the Northeast.

Ouhrabka explained, “Manufacturing is in my blood and experiencing a revival in our country. The consumer wants products made in the USA, and as the cost to import has risen, manufacturers have increased their US production. Our current economy has people out of work and the more we make here, the more we support our own people.”

Johnson stated that “it was a pleasure to work with both buyer and seller on this transaction. I am confident that this business is an excellent match for Tim’s skill set and expect this company to thrive under Tim’s leadership. Transactions such as this one with a real balance sheet, experienced professionals, a willing lender with SBA backing, and a good business plan are a great match with our business model nationwide. These are job creating transactions.”

Naturals will focus on US manufacturing growth by expanding the current product line and customer base. Plans also include the introduction of natural, environmentally friendly products.

The business has operated for over thirty years and the acquisition was financed through the SBA.
