Incline Equity Partners (“Incline”), a Pittsburgh-based lower middle-market private equity firm, announces the acquisition of Unified Power (“Unified” or the “Company”), the largest independent provider of preventative maintenance and repair services for uninterruptible power systems (“UPS”) in North America.
“Unified exhibits many of the attractive characteristics that we look for when investing in a company,” said John Morley, Managing Director with Incline. “In addition to providing a critical, non-deferrable recurring service to customers, the Company is a proven platform for acquisitions and is led by an outstanding management team that has a strong cultural fit with Incline.”
Based in Terrell, TX, Unified has a national footprint and offers a variety of maintenance service plans to ensure all critical power supply equipment is properly serviced. Service plans not only keep systems operating at optimal levels, but also extend the life of batteries and other system components. In addition to UPS services, the Company also provides DC plant and inverter maintenance as well as battery monitoring, maintenance and replacement services.
Chris Roach, President & CEO at Unified, added, “We’ve invested heavily in our business infrastructure over the past several years. We are well positioned to continue pursuing acquisitions, and we are excited to work with Incline to accelerate the Company’s growth through an enhanced marketing and sales program, an expanded national accounts effort and the addition of new service offerings.”
