Private equity firm Evolution Capital Partners LLC has made a growth investment in EnviroScience Consultants, Inc., an environmental consulting firm that provides a range of inspection and testing services to schools, property owners and healthcare institutions throughout the state of New York. Established in 1998, ECI is headquartered in Ronkonkoma, New York with locations in Long Island and Westchester County.
ECI represents the first investment for Evolution's Mainline Environmental, a new platform established for environmental testing and compliance companies. Businesses operating under the Mainline Environmental platform will focus on consulting, inspection, testing and monitoring, and remediation of lead, asbestos, mold and other contaminants for commercial customers in various industries.
"The environmental services industry is burgeoning with increased public health concerns, aging infrastructure and heightened attention being paid to 'green' initiatives. We are excited to partner with Glenn and his team at ECI to begin to capitalize on these trends and accelerate the growth of the business," said Jeffrey Kadlic, Evolution's founding partner. "In addition to providing resources and know-how to enhance ECI's business processes, we will also pursue complementary add-on acquisitions to further broaden its service offerings and geographic reach."
