BlackArch Partners Advises on the Sale of Cast-Crete, portfolio company of Stonebridge Partners, to Monomoy Capital Partners

BlackArch Partners is pleased to announce the sale of Cast-Crete Holdings, LLC, a portfolio company of Stonebridge Partners, to Monomoy Capital Partners.

CHARLOTTE, NC (January 11, 2022) – BlackArch Partners (“BlackArch”) is pleased to announce the sale of Cast-Crete Holdings, LLC (“Cast-Crete” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of Stonebridge Partners (“Stonebridge”), to Monomoy Capital Partners (“Monomoy”).

Cast-Crete, headquartered in Seffner, FL, is a vertically integrated producer and distributor of building products for use in residential and commercial construction. The Company has a 65-year track record of supplying customers across Florida with high-quality precast and prestressed concrete products that are delivered directly to individual jobsites through a sophisticated distribution network. As the industry’s pioneer and market leader, Cast-Crete is well positioned to benefit from strong economic and demographic tailwinds driving growth in residential construction throughout the southeastern United States.

BlackArch was retained by Cast-Crete and Stonebridge Partners to serve as the Company’s exclusive financial advisor. The transaction builds upon BlackArch’s significant momentum in the building products sector and is a further example of the firm’s ability to drive superior outcomes for market-leading businesses.

Jim Connelly, Chief Executive Officer of Cast-Crete, commented, “It didn’t take long after we chose BlackArch for us to feel confident that we made the right decision.  Their team exhibited a great deal of professionalism throughout the process.  It was impressive how fast they educated themselves about Cast-Crete and the entire market that we service.  Their relentless attention to detail and their understanding of our customers, vendors, products and management team gave us the highest level of confidence.  Our shareholders were very pleased with the end result, thanks to each person on the BlackArch team.  I hope to have the opportunity to work with this dedicated team again in the future, as not only did they gain my utmost respect from a business standpoint, but I also made a new group of friends.”

Dave Schopp, Operating Partner with Stonebridge, added, “BlackArch was a true partner to Cast-Crete’s management team, helping them every step of the way throughout the process.  BlackArch’s analytical horsepower is second to none, and their diligent marketing approach provided potential buyers with a solid understanding of the key attributes of the business.”

Bill Connors, Managing Director with Stonebridge, further noted, “The BlackArch team overdelivered throughout every step of the process. The senior-level attention and in-depth industry knowledge provided by BlackArch resulted in an efficient process and successful outcome for our investors.”
