Soundcore oversaw 14 acquisitions and entered major markets including Northern California, Los Angeles County, San Diego County, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Denver, St. Louis, and New York. Soundcore supported management’s growth initiatives in investments in people and equipment including adding state-of-the-art camera technology, new 60-ton rigs capable of setting pumps in deep well aquifers, laser alignment tools to ensure systems are operating efficiently; and in a learning management system to support the expansion of the skills of all employees.
“We are proud of our partnership with the PumpMan management team, which successfully executed on Soundcore’s platform creation strategy which includes a mix of inorganic and organic growth,” said Jarrett Turner, Founder and Managing Partner of Soundcore. “We are pleased with the outcome for our investors.
