New Harbor Capital has made a majority investment in Fix-It 24/7, a residential home services provider.
Fix-It provides non-discretionary home maintenance, repair, and replacement services, for HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems. The company, led by CEO George Donaldson, exclusively serves the residential home segment and its current service territory is the greater Denver Metropolitan area.
“From the first encounter it was obvious our organizations shared similar values as well as a growth-oriented mindset,” said Mr. Donaldson. “New Harbor’s depth of experience working with owner-operators, their track record of successfully accelerating growth, and their focus on building quality businesses were critical factors in our evaluation, and we are excited to have them as our partner.”
“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with George Donaldson and the team at Fix-It,” said Ed Lhee, a partner at New Harbor Capital. “George and the team have created a culture of excellence, and we are excited to support them with investments in technology, infrastructure, and strategic acquisitions to further accelerate the company’s growth.”
