Center Rock Capital Partners acquires Texas-based global composite matting engineering and manufacturing company.
Signature Systems Group, a Texas-based leading manufacturer of composite ground protection products, this week announces a change in investment partnership to Center Rock Capital Partners, LP, of Chicago, Illinois and Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
“Signature has been at the forefront of the ground protection industry since the company’s inception in 1998,” says Signature’s CEO Pradeep Saha. “We have worked diligently to build an organization focused on customer needs, manufacturing excellence and product innovation. We are excited to partner with Center Rock and leverage their manufacturing expertise, network and resources as we continue to pursue significant growth opportunities.”
Center Rock Capital Partners invests in North American middle market industrial companies that serve both domestic and global markets. They provide equity capital “to support businesses working to unlock value by becoming stronger franchises through operational or strategic improvement…providing real-world tools and solutions.”
Center Rock Partner Terry Theodore says in Center Rock’s announcement, “Pradeep and the Signature team are changing the industry as their innovative composite mats gain wider acceptance among ground protection products. Investing heavily in proprietary designs and patented manufacturing technology, Signature is expected to benefit from strong industry tailwinds.”
Center Rock Capital Partners identifies as “a team that wants to do the hard work,” noting that great firms are built with transparency, flexibility, speed and credibility. Its portfolio includes companies such as American Piping Products of St. Louis, Missouri; LINC Systems, LLC, of Westfield, Indiana; and The Merit Distribution Group of Spartanburg, South Carolina.
