RICHMOND, Virginia — Gridiron Capital LLC has purchased Dent Wizard International, a portfolio company of H.I.G. Capital, according to a press release.
Harris Williams & Co. advised Dent Wizard on the sale, noted the release.
“Dent Wizard represents another marquee transaction in the aftermarket services sector,” added Joe Conner, a managing director at Harris Williams & Co., in the release. “As the lead advisor on Dent Wizard along with other recent transactions like Caliber Collision Centers, ABRA and Mister Car Wash, we have seen firsthand the tremendous appetite for deals in this sector. The compelling combination of steady, long-term growth combined with a highly fragmented industry has consistently proven to be an attractive investment thesis.”
