Align Capital Partners (“ACP”) is pleased to announce that its portfolio company SEAM Group, LLC (“SEAM”) has acquired BalticBerg Consulting Sp. z o.o., a Warsaw, Poland-based provider of resource management consulting services. Earlier this year, ACP announced “SEAM” as the new brand name for its reliability and safety services platform comprised of Predictive Service and Lewellyn Technology. At its core, SEAM’s objective is to help companies create a safer world without downtime. This represents ACP’s fourteenth acquisition in its inaugural fund, Align Capital Partners Fund I, and the firm’s fourth acquisition of 2019.
BalticBerg is a natural extension of SEAM’s existing European platform, with proven success in helping customers reduce operational losses by up to 80 percent by increasing productivity and machine uptime. BalticBerg utilizes on-site consulting, training seminars and workshops, and joint project work to reduce operational costs for clients and mitigate risk.
“We are excited to become a part of SEAM and offer our expert consulting services to a wide range of customers throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Our 4 Operating Forces approach to establishing a sustainable operation will seamlessly integrate with SEAM Group practices. SEAM’s ViewPoint® technology and management programs will provide our consultants and training professionals with additional tools to help our customers optimize their operations,” said Arkadiusz Burnos, Chief Executive Officer, BalticBerg.
ACP acquired a majority stake in Lewellyn in November 2017 and then Lewellyn merged with Predictive Service in August 2018. “This acquisition provides a unique opportunity to deepen our presence in Europe with an experienced team and extend our global reach for existing clients, while offering new services to BalticBerg’s customers,” said ACP Managing Partner Chris Jones.
Working alongside Chris Jones on this transaction were Operating Partner John Dupuy, Vice President Matt Beesley, and Senior Associate Kurt Smentek. ACP will continue to seek add-on acquisitions of niche predictive maintenance and safety service providers.
