CF Private Equity’s Real Assets and Sustainability team recently hosted a fireside chat webinar with the Noveon Magnetics CEO, Scott Dunn. Preceding this conversation was a brief overview of CF Private Equity’s current macroeconomic outlook.
There is a perceptible global economic trend toward the more efficient production and consumption of key commodities and resources. This mega-trend is being amplified by both growing scrutiny of supply chains and a renewed emphasis on resource security, stemming from the combination of the COVID-19 disruption of the global economy and, most recently, Europe’s still-unfolding energy crisis. These factors stoked inflationary pressure that continues to impact global capital markets.
In line with these themes around supply chain management and resource security, CF Private Equity’s Real Assets and Sustainability team was joined by Scott Dunn, co-founder and CEO of Noveon Magnetics. Noveon is the only American rare earth magnet manufacturer, providing a domestic supply of these critical components. Rare earth magnets are a key input in the energy transition and are found in a range of transition and traditional economy products. In addition to Noveon’s status as the sole domestic manufacturer of rare earth magnets, the company is also the only manufacturer able to utilize recycled feedstock in the production process, creating less of a reliance on international processors of rare earth inputs while offering a domestic option in the broader energy transition supply chain.
