“We believe this is an opportune time to invest in Brundage-Bone, the unquestioned industry leader in concrete pumping,” said Joshua Phillips, Managing Partner of Peninsula Pacific. “With the construction industry in the early stages of a rebound, Brundage-Bone is well positioned to grow in this increasingly attractive market niche. By providing the right financial resources to support the company’s operating needs, we intend to work with Brundage-Bone’s management team to pursue its strategic initiatives in existing and adjacent geographies.”
Brundage-Bone provides its concrete-pumping services to customers in the commercial, residential and infrastructure construction end-markets. The company employs approximately 550 people and operates 51 locations in 16 states in the western, mountain, south-central and mid-west regions of the country. Brundage-Bone was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Denver (www.brundagebone.com).

In addition to its differentiated equipment fleet and highly skilled employees, the company has outstanding relationships with a deep network of national and local contractors across numerous markets. We look forward to supporting management’s growth strategy in the years to come,” said Brent Stevens, Chairman of Peninsula Pacific.
