Centre Partners and Housatonic Partners on their sale of Wind River Environmental LLC to RFE Investment Partners

Headwaters MB, now Capstone Partners, advised Centre Partners and Housatonic Partners on their sale of Wind River Environmental LLC (WRE), a waste services company based in Hudson, MA, to RFE Investment Partners, a private equity firm based in New Canaan, CT.

“This company is one of the most tightly managed and perfectly aligned organizations I’ve ever worked with,” said Managing Director Doug Usifer of Headwaters’ Industrials Practice. “Everyone from the Board of Directors down to the service technicians work off of the same metrics and goals in their proprietary operating system. WRE’s acquisition of five companies during the sale process is further indicative of the strong platform they’ve created and their prospects moving forward.”

We were very proud to represent this company and this management team; Wind River is a highly attractive asset. RFE understood the opportunity to acquire the regional leader in this space, and they will empower the management team at WRE to knock it out of the park.

The Wind River Environmental group of companies was founded in 1946 when Denny Currier of Middleton, Massachusetts began servicing local homes from his “honey wagon”. Since 1999 the company has merged together some of the best known and most respected names in the industry and now provides brown grease and septic services from Maine to Pennsylvania.
