AVON, CONNECTICUT, September 2, 2020 – Ironwood Capital is pleased to announce a subordinated debt and equity investment in a national janitorial services and facilities maintenance business servicing 15,000 plus locations. The company offers services to clients in the commercial/office, industrial, healthcare, retail, educational, and manufacturing industries.
“We are excited about the growth prospects for this company,” stated Ironwood Capital Senior Managing Director Roger Roche. “The customer base is broad and growing, and the current pandemic situation provides a strong tailwind both now and long term. The industry sees this situation as an impetus to reduce commodity-based thinking around cleaning and establishing new controls to ensure cleanliness.” Paul Witinski, director at Ironwood Capital added, “the facilities maintenance market is extremely fragmented, and we see a lot of opportunity to grow by acquisition.”
“Revolent is excited to partner with Ironwood and the incumbent management team in building a leading, national facilities maintenance and janitorial company in North America. This partnership allows us to serve customers across the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada with consistent daily service. We have continued to add new national customers through this unprecedented pandemic as companies shift focus to their cleaning efforts. We will continue to add both service capabilities and key industry segments such as healthcare and education to our platform,” said Josh Kuder, managing partner and chief investment partner at Revolent Capital Solutions.
