Blue Point, Brimar Acquire Crowd Control

The private equity firm and its portfolio company acquired the Chicago-based distributor of crowd-control, traffic and safety products.
While distributors still face major challenges from supply chain backlogs, labor and pricing strategies, the economy seemed to be the biggest topic of concern as we passed the midpoint of 2022.

Blue Point Capital Partners and its BPCP IV portfolio company, Brimar Industries, acquired Crowd Control Warehouse, a designer and distributor of crowd-control, traffic and safety products.

CCW specializes in safety products including barricades, stanchions, belt barriers, signage and traffic control devices. Its customers operate in a variety of end markets, such as government, event, construction, retail, distribution and the education sector.

“Blue Point and Brimar’s combined value-add capabilities made our choice extremely simple,” said Brook Park Holdings Managing Partner Mark Palchak, an existing investor in CCW partnering alongside Blue Point and Brimar. “We look forward to building on our strategic growth initiatives and expanding CCW’s e-commerce platform with the additional support, resources and expertise of the Blue Point and Brimar teams.”
