Together, we’ve built the market’s largest and most respected player,” said Reminder. “With their deep experience and long track record of successfully partnering with companies like ours, we are confident CCMP is the ideal partner to help us achieve even greater heights.”

“Since investing in Truck Hero in 2014, TA Associates has been privileged to partner with Bill Reminder and his team, and we are proud of the growth and accomplishments of the business over this period,” said Michael Berk, a managing director at TA. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with management and working alongside CCMP as Truck Hero continues to execute on its organic growth and add-on acquisition strategies.”

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017, subject to customary closing conditions. Ropes & Gray LLP advised CCMP on the transaction.
