Bow River Capital Completes Acquisition of RailPros

On January 3, 2017, Bow River Capital Partners along with co-investors Aberdeen Asset Management, Brooke Private Equity Associates, and an undisclosed family office, acquired controlling ownership interests in RailPros, RailPros Inspection Services and RailPros Field Services (collectively, “RailPros”). Bow River partnered with management to recapitalize the business and provide a foundation for future growth.

RailPros is a comprehensive provider of outsource services to the freight and transit/commuter rail industries. RailPros provides turnkey engineering, project/program and construction management, and flagging safety services to both public and private customers. The services offered by RailPros alleviate the need for customers to recruit, train, and retain the requisite technical talent internally to perform these mission-critical functions. Furthermore, the pressure amongst these customers to reduce headcount and otherwise control operating costs makes the company’s on-call service offering and depth and breadth of technical capabilities even more valuable. Over the years, RailPros has continuously introduced new services to its customer base, further entrenching its position as a trusted and industry-dedicated technical services partner. Recognized as an industry leader, RailPros has rapidly expanded throughout the country, now servicing customers in approximately 40 states with an employee base of more than 300. RailPros was founded in 2000 and has headquarters in Irvine, California and Grapevine, Texas.
