Ironwood Capital Exits Portfolio Company The Facilities Group

By on , Announcements

AVON, CONNECTICUT, February 7, 2022 – Ironwood Capital is pleased to announce that it has exited The Facilities Group (“TFG”), a national facilities maintenance business formed by Revolent Capital Solutions, and a portfolio company of the firm. 

Paul Witinski, managing director at Ironwood Capital stated, “Our investment thesis for The Facilities Group was to partner with Revolent to build a national leader within the janitorial services industry through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions. TFG completed eight acquisitions in under two years, a rapid pace enabled by the excellent execution of the strategy by all groups involved – Ironwood, Revolent and the management team. Most importantly, we are grateful to the employees of TFG, who worked tirelessly to provide critical cleaning services to customers across many industries during very challenging times.”

Ironwood Capital Partner Roger Roche added, “This was an example of middle market private equity done right. We partnered with Revolent and TFG to acquire small, well-run businesses with great customer relationships but insufficient scale and backoffice support to reach the next level of growth. The TFG platform provided these businesses with the size, professionalism, and shared service center to improve their operations while allowing them to focus on doing what they do best – helping their customers succeed. We are very proud of the role we played in the success of TFG.”
