VR Mergers and Acquisitions announces the successful acquisition of a Bartlett Controls, Inc., a manufacturers rep and distributor of the finest products from industry leaders to the Natural Gas, Power and Industrial markets to Compass Group Equity Partners, based in St. Louis, MO.

“When we were approached about selling our company, I was not sure who I could find to represent me. I was referred to Adam Petricoff at VR Mergers & Acquisitions. It became clear to me early on, that Adam had the experience and knowledge to help get us through this transaction. He helped pull together a great team of advisors, with Ascension Law and Greer Walker CPA’s & Advisors. Together, they were taking care of getting the deal completed, with Adam and his team leading the way. No way we get the deal done without VR Mergers & Acquisitions taking charge on our behalf.  The process went relatively smoothly and when it didn’t, my team of advisors helped me along the way.  They all provided me with excellent Tommcounsel, communication, professionalism, and execution from start to finish.  A great job by the whole team, Led by Adam Petricoff at VR Mergers & Acquisitions, Nicole Mottershead and John Norman at Greer Walker and Brandy Milazzo and Erika Erlenbach and the rest of the team at Ascension Law. I learned the true value of having great advisors around me at this critical time. I cannot thank you all enough.”

Compass Group Equity Partners is the owner of KGM, a leading value-add distributor of regulators, valves, and measuring equipment for residential and commercial utility companies, and has experienced an impressive growth trajectory. This acquisition with North Carolina-based Bartlett Controls will further expand their reach across the United States.

The strategic partnership unlocks key territories for KGM in the Carolinas and Virginia and creates significant opportunities for both industry-leaders to streamline purchasing and further broaden their OEM and product extension pipelines. Bartlett Controls will continue operating under its own entity with the current executive leadership team at the helm.

Chris Gibson, Managing Partner of Compass Partner Equity Group stated, “VR Mergers & Acquisitions was great to work with during this acquisition. Adam and his team were easy to work with, always communicating with us along the way and were absolute professionals throughout the process. Adam’s experience and problem-solving skills really helped us get through some hurdles during negotiations that ultimately got us to the finish line. I highly recommend VR Mergers & Acquisitions and look forward to doing business with them again.”
