Needham, Massachusetts – May 21, 2019
CERES Technology Advisors is pleased to announce growth financing for Emphysys, Inc.

The Company

Emphysys is a powerhouse technology development partner who is changing the future of R&D and new product development.  With specialties in medical devices, semiconductor equipment and industrial machinery, the company is comprised of a diverse group of driven professionals with extensive backgrounds in fundamental physics and complex engineering systems.

Unique is the breadth and depth of the Company’s technical disciplines – from RF power and plasma physics to optics and electronics to embedded control systems.  With a systems-level and design-driven approach to product development and its core capability to recruit, grow and retain top technical talent, Emphysys is partnering with its customers to deliver new products on unprecedented time scales.

The growth capital financing was led by Valero Capital Partners. Managing Director, Jim Pelusi, commented, “Through our due diligence, we developed a high regard for the deep and broad technical expertise of Emphysys and their ability to dramatically reduce product development times and costs. We are excited about partnering with them to expand their market reach and product offerings”.

Financing Accelerated Growth

Building on an outstanding history of rapid organic growth, Emphysys raised growth capital to scale its product development services offering, to add software development capabilities and to round out its management team.

“CERES prepared us well for our financing and introduced us to a wide range of strategic and financial investors,” says Ali Shajii, Founder and CEO of Emphysys. “We were highly selective and are thrilled to be working with insightful and connected industry leaders who bring more to the table than their financial investment.  With our growth financing in place, Emphysys is acquiring new clients and supplying more to existing clients who want to stay ahead of their competition and their customer expectations.”

The Team

“Partnerships are defined by people and the Emphysys team is our greatest differentiator,” says Dan Masse, Vice President of Engineering of Emphysys. “We are excited to add investors to our team who are proven leaders with successful track records profitably growing companies in the engineering services and medical device industries.”

New additions to the management team are Timothy Bowe, Chief Operations Officer and John Carey, Vice President of Business Development.  Previously, as CEO of Foliage, Inc., Tim Bowe led Foliage through its acquisition by Altran Technologies, S.A., the $3billion global market leader in engineering consulting services.

Jim Pelusi, Managing Director of Valero Capital Partners; Stuart Auerbach, Advisor to Valero Capital Partners; and Tim of Bowe join Emphysys’ Board of Directors.
