Private equity company acquires MicroCare
Private equity investment company, Capital Partners has acquired MicroCare in partnership with the company’s co-founder and senior management. MicroCare will continue to operate under the MicroCare, Sticklers and MicroCare Medical brands.
“We closed this investment in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis as the company has proven to be a strong, recession-resistant essential business, which should benefit from a growing global focus on cleanliness and increasing importance on telecom infrastructure,” said Sarah Paquet, Vice President at Capital Partners.
Tom Tattersall (pictured), former MicroCare COO, will assume the role of MicroCare CEO.
