Brockway Moran Buys Turning Tech From Talisman

Brockway Moran & Partners has bought Turning Technologies, which provides response systems used by educators and presenters. The seller is Talisman Capital Partners, a PE shop in Columbus, Ohio.

peHUB reported the sale to Brockway Moran last week. Now we have confirmation but no deal value. Turning Technologies’ management appears to be retaining a stake, according to a press release.

Turning Tech, of Youngstown, Ohio, makes polling software, handheld response devices and response receivers. The company sells its products to schools, universities, enterprises and government agencies, according to the company website. Talisman acquired Turning Technologies via a recapitalization in 2006. It’s not clear how much they invested.

Brockway, which has $1.3 billion capital under management, likes “growth-oriented companies.” The buyout shop, along with MVP Capital Partners, recently inked a deal to sell Air Medical Group to Bain Capital for about $1 billion.

Officials for Talisman and Brockway couldn’t be reached for comment.
