LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- Platinum Equity announced today it has completed the sale of NESCO to an affiliate of Energy Capital Partners LLC ("ECP"). Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Based in Fort Wayne, Ind., NESCO is a leading provider of fleet equipment rental, sales and services for the North American electrical transmission and distribution market.
"We are proud of the way NESCO grew and evolved under Platinum Equity's ownership," said Louis Samson, the Partner at Platinum Equity who led the team that acquired NESCO. "We created substantial value in the business by investing in NESCO's people, fleet, operations, processes and systems. The business is well positioned for continued success under ECP's ownership."
Platinum Equity acquired a controlling interest in NESCO in October 2011. Since that time, NESCO has undergone a series of operational and M&A initiatives to drive growth and create a more profitable and operationally sound business.
Under Platinum Equity's ownership, the company completed two add-on acquisitions, which helped grow NESCO's fleet and expand the company's footprint in key regions. In August 2012, NESCO acquired the utility equipment fleet and related assets of Penske's utility rental division and in December 2012 acquired Utility Equipment Leasing Corporation.
Morgan Stanley and Harris Williams served as financial advisors to Platinum Equity on the sale of NESCO and Latham & Watkins served as legal advisors.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
