Expansion Continues for Alliance Source Testing with Acquisition of Air Pollution Testing
April 2, 2018 – Align Capital Partners’ (“ACP”) platform company Alliance Source Testing, LLC (“Alliance”) has completed its third add-on acquisition with the purchase of Air Pollution Testing, Inc. (“APT”). APT provides source emission testing (stack testing) and oil & gas laboratory services to customers in the western U.S. with offices in Denver, Salt Lake City and Anchorage.
Acquiring APT was an important next step for ACP who is actively investing in growth to build a national, best-in-class stack testing platform. Strategically, APT allows Alliance to enter two new markets in the West, while bolstering its current team in Utah.
Mike McNaughton, Co-Owner of APT said, “The partnership with Alliance is an exciting new chapter for APT’s employees and customers. We have great pride in the personal attention we’ve delivered our customers over the past 25 years and believe Alliance’s industry leading service culture is the perfect extension of those efforts.”
“The APT team is a great complement to our expanding national platform,” noted Alliance CEO Chris LeMay. “The opportunity to partner with their experienced test teams to deepen customer relationships with greater proximity to additional customer facilities is a big win.”
Following the integration of APT, ACP will continue to seek add-on targets for its growing Alliance platform which was first acquired in October 2016. ACP Managing Partner Rob Langley said, “We’re encouraged by what we’re building with Alliance and continue to find compelling opportunities in the attractive stack testing space.”
Together, Alliance and APT have a strong national footprint of ten offices across Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah, with attractive geographic density in key regions and the technical expertise to serve a diverse range of end markets.
