RELATIONSHIP WILL BE FOCUSED ON ACCELERATING GROWTH AND CREATING VALUE FOR MCP CLIENTS
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (January 8, 2018)— Mission Critical Partners (MCP), a provider of professional services and lifecycle management solutions for mission-critical infrastructure, and Egis Capital Partners, a leading private equity firm focused on the Security and Protection industry, announced today a new strategic partnership. The agreement brings together MCP’s extensive team of specialized mission-critical communications professionals and the strategic and financial backing of Egis Capital Partners, positioning both companies to create greater value for clients and drive the digital transformation of the public safety communications sector.
The public safety communications sector is facing unprecedented opportunity. The nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN)—being implemented by the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet)—and Next Generation 911 (NG911) both are gaining traction. These networks will enable new types of data to flow into 911 centers and out to first responders once they are implemented. MCP has extensive experience in helping to develop and implement these networks, while Egis focuses primarily on investing in the data-centric smart city and sensor technology sectors.
“THERE IS TREMENDOUS SYNERGY BETWEEN OUR TWO ORGANIZATIONS. WHILE WE HAVE ACHIEVED IMPRESSIVE GROWTH SINCE 2009, THIS ARRANGEMENT WILL ENABLE US TO GROW OUR BUSINESS IN NEW AND EXCITING WAYS BY EXPANDING TO NEW GEOGRAPHIES. IT ALSO WILL CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR US TO BETTER SERVE OUR CLIENTS AND OFFER GREATER ROOM FOR GROWTH TO OUR STAFF MEMBERS.” SAID KEVIN MURRAY, MCP’S PRESIDENT AND CEO.
Robert Chefitz, founder and managing partner of Egis Capital Partners added, “We are very enthusiastic about our partnership with MCP. I’m very impressed with their breadth and depth of experience in the public safety sector. Egis believes that MCP will play an essential role in the transformative safe city initiatives that will drive tremendous growth for technology solutions.”
