Private investment firm Capital Partners has acquired Roll-Rite Tarping Systems, a manufacturer of automated tarping systems for the construction, refuse, and agricultural industries.
Capital Partners, based in Greenwich, CT, worked in conjunction with minority partners Argosy Capital and management on the purchase.
“This is the classic win-win scenario,” said Brad Templeman, CEO of Roll-Rite. “Roll-Rite has enjoyed a very successful growth initiative, even in a lean economy, by developing innovative, market-driven products and through expansion into new domestic as well as international markets. Capital Partners brings to us a proven track record of providing a strong balance sheet to support growth, and assisting companies to get to the next level.”
Capital Partners purchased Roll-Rite from Copeley Capital out of Charlotte, NC. Purchase price was not disclosed.
“The addition of Roll-Rite to our portfolio is a very exciting prospect,” said Mark D. Allsteadt, managing director of Capital Partners. “We have a strong interest in the manufacturing sector, and look for small to mid-sized innovative companies with unique technologies - companies like Roll-Rite - that also share our key philosophies of lean enterprise and action-based planning disciplines. Capital Partners believes in being patient and disciplined investors who support exceptional management teams as they develop their business. We look forward to working with Roll-Rite as they expand into more new markets and reach out to new customers.”
