National Facilities Maintenance and Janitorial Partners with RNA Facilities Management

AVON, CONNECTICUT, February 11, 2021 – Ironwood Capital is pleased to announce that National Facilities Maintenance and Janitorial, LLC (“NFM&J”), a national facilities maintenance business and a portfolio company of the firm, has acquired RNA Facilities Management (“RNA”). RNA is a facilities services company based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. NFM&J, formed by Revolent Capital Solutions in April 2020, provides janitorial, mechanical, and various exterior services for education, healthcare, corporate, manufacturing, and government customers.

Ironwood Capital Senior Managing Director Roger Roche stated, “This acquisition will augment a strong tailwind of organic growth at both NFM&J and RNA. It provides increased scale and allows both NFM&J and RNA to benefit from each other’s capabilities and diversified industry experience.” Paul Witinski, director at Ironwood Capital added, “The facilities management and maintenance market remains extremely fragmented, and we see a lot of opportunity to continue to partner with business owners and grow by acquisition.”

“This is a strategic partnership between NFM&J and the team that built RNA,” stated Bryson Raver, CEO of NFM&J. “Our investment thesis for NFM&J has been to grow the customer base both organically and via acquisition. We’re excited to partner with a very entrepreneurial team that has built a great company. This partnership transforms NFM&J and makes it one of the fastest growing national providers of facilities maintenance and janitorial companies in the US.”
