Revive Infrastructure Group, a leading provider of critical infrastructure services, announced today that it has acquired Crown Utilities in partnership with Sileo Capital and Brightwood Capital. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Headquartered in Nampa, Idaho, Crown Utilities is a utility contractor with significant experience across multiple utilities and a focus on the telecommunications infrastructure sector. Crown offers a full range of services including boring, trenching, aerial and underground conduit and cable installation, and fiber and copper splicing to commercial and government customers.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Crown Utilities. Crown brings several highly experienced senior managers with whom I have had personal and professional relationships for several years and who I know to be excellent operators. The addition of these experienced managers and talented base of employees, new capabilities and customers in the telecom sector, as well as exposure to the fast-growing Intermountain West region of the United States, makes for an excellent complement to Revive’s existing business.”
Shane Mace, Chief Executive Officer of Revive Infrastructure Group
“In the Revive team we have found a true partnership with world class operators and industry veterans who value our customer relationships and our dedicated employees,” said Ken Killingbeck, Co-Founder and President of Crown Utilities. “With this partnership, Crown will not only gain valuable resources to better serve our customers, but it will enable us to enhance the benefits and growth opportunities that we can offer to our employees.”
The Crown Utilities brand will be retained and it will operate as the Intermountain West division of Revive Infrastructure Group. Ken Killingbeck will continue as President of Crown Utilities.
This is Revive’s second acquisition since Sileo Capital formed the company as part of the acquisition of Excel Utility Contractors in July 2021.
