Specifically, Heritage seeks out enterprises owned by highly skilled and motivated entrepreneurs with the belief that, by partnering with these dynamic individuals, they can help accelerate growth and together bring a company to its full potential.
EPTAM Plastics, Ltd. (“EPTAM” or the “Company”) of Northfield, New Hampshire, announced that it has been recapitalized by New Heritage Capital, LLC and its affiliates (“Heritage”), a Boston-based private investment firm. This transaction is the successful culmination of an initiative led by Bigelow LLC to proactively seek out the best next investor that would satisfy the personal and professional objectives of the EPTAM shareholders.
“Heritage is an extremely successful firm with a depth of experience working with niche manufacturing businesses. Their partnership approach stood out in a crowded field of investors; their resources and support will be invaluable as we continue to grow EPTAM.” Jeff Hollinger, President EPTAM Plastics, Ltd.
EPTAM’s existing management team will be continuing on with the Company and has invested alongside Heritage and the Dearborn Family in the recapitalization.
“The Dearborn family and the whole EPTAM team have built an incredible business providing unique and difficult-to-manufacture products to hundreds of blue-chip customers over the past 30-plus years. We are excited to partner with the Management team and Dearborn family to continue to expand the Company’s capabilities and execute on an exciting growth plan.” Mark Jrolf, Managing General Partner New Heritage Capital, LLC
