Our management team could not have been more pleased to work with Summit Park on the acquisition of Arkive from Iron Mountain. It was a complicated legal transaction coupled with regulatory complexity and extraordinary timelines. In each stage of the transaction and company formation, Summit Park has been a trusted partner, and we would not want anyone else in our foxhole!

After meetings with numerous companies, I felt something special about the Summit Park team. They seemed to care about my employees and my business. After working together, my feelings have been confirmed. Summit Park has made major strides in helping us improve our company, and they have been very helpful to my team. I’m thankful for my decision to partner with Summit Park!

Partnering with a private equity firm was an important decision for me and my company. Before selecting Summit Park, I talked to a number of people about them, their approach, and how they work. Their references were excellent, and they have proven to be the partner for Control Company that I expected them to be.

Control Company
We chose to partner with the Summit Park team because of their proven ability to support high growth businesses like Charter. They took the time to understand our business and industry and were instrumental in helping us achieve outstanding growth.

When I referenced Summit Park prior to partnering with them, I was impressed by the clear and consistent feedback that they would be excellent value-added partners for NSi. I continue to be a significant shareholder in the company, and I have been very pleased in the progress that we have made since their investment. Summit Park has helped make the changes that needed to be made to position the company for continued success.

Summit Park has supported me at every turn during my time at Control. With their help and support, we have made key hires to build and strengthen our commercial and technical teams, accelerated investment in our business processes, product and technology development, and commerce capabilities, and have continued to be a leading supplier to our global distributor network.

Control Company
When considering financial partners I wanted to find a firm that was willing to learn the unique nuances in our business that are much different from most other types of businesses. The team at Summit Park has shown the willingness to learn those differences and help us plan how to move forward and grow our business. Our employees are excited at the prospect of being able to service more and more customers on a daily basis and spread the TIE level of service to other areas in the industrial community. We all look forward to a bright future with the Summit Park team.
