L2 Capital Partners has sold LSC Environmental Products to Ancor Capital Partners.
LSC is a manufacturer of spray-applied coatings that are used to control and prevent the environmental challenges of erosion, odor, land reclamation, waste cover, seeding, and dust. The company also produces a line of mixers and spray applicators that can be used with its coating products.
Company-owned brand names include, among others, Posi-Shell, Posi-Cube, Odor-Shell, Solar-Spark, EarthGuard, and AquaGuard. LSC, led by CEO Joseph Donze, is headquartered in Apalachin, NY with an additional facility in Bakersfield, CA (www.lscenv.com) (www.terranovo.com).
L2 acquired LSC Environmental (then Landfill Service Corporation) in March 2011. During L2’s ownership term the company underwent significant corporate management changes; acquired Terra Novo, a Bakersfield, CA-based provider of spray-applied environmental coatings under the EarthGuard brand, in March 2016; and developed multiple new products.
“This successful exit exemplifies how L2 works with portfolio companies. Over the course of our investment, L2 recruited a new CEO and CFO, worked with management to craft a broader go-to-market strategy, and completed a synergistic add-on acquisition,” said Bob Levine, a managing partner of L2. “All this was achieved while ensuring that the team and the company had the resources and investment required. We always knew LSC’s products delivered best in class performance; the LSC team built upon that foundation to lead the company to its current level. We are confident in their continued success.”
