CLEVELAND, Feb. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Point Capital Partners and its Blue Point II portfolio company, Alco Manufacturing Corporation, LLC, announced today the acquisition of K&M Precision Products Co., a complementary precision machined steel products manufacturer and Alco’s third facility acquired while partnered with Blue Point.
