Blue Sage Capital, Texas-based private equity firm has completed investment in Americo Manufacturing Company. Headquartered in Acworth, with additional facilities in Cartersville, and Los Angeles, Americo is a globally-recognised, leading manufacturer of floor maintenance pads and a top manufacturer of commercial and retail floor matting products in the US.

Americo produces a diverse range of high-loft, nonwoven products, which include floor maintenance pads as well as specialty fabrics which are utilised in a variety of industries. Aside from nonwovens, the company also designs and manufactures a complete line of vinyl-backed, walk-off floor mats for use in industrial, promotional, retail, custom and specialty market applications. Americo’s products are currently sold in all 50 states of the US and in over 70 countries around the world.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Blue Sage as we continue to grow our business from the solid foundation established nearly 50 years ago. Blue Sage’s expertise of investing in family-owned businesses, along with their vast strategic and financial resources, will provide us the ability to significantly increase the growth trajectory for our company," Americo’s CEO, Lenny Shutzberg, said.

"Americo is the quintessential investment for Blue Sage Capital. We look for partnerships with market-leading, family-owned and managed businesses, which have demonstrated a long-term defensible competitive advantage and established significant barriers of entry in their respective industries. Americo has a proven business model and an extremely capable management team. Highlighted by the receipt of the only Green Seal Certification issued to any floor pad manufacturer in the world, the Company continues to demonstrate innovative leadership in the cleaning industry. We are excited about our new partnership with Americo and look forward to working with their entire management team," said Jim McBride, co-founder and managing member of Blue Sage. (RR)
