Peak Rock Capital’s portfolio company SAM Companies has acquired Linewise Aerial, expanding its client solutions in the Western US and Canada.

Austin-headquartered SAM is a provider of professional geospatial and inspection services across the utilities, transportation, and broader infrastructure industries.

“As we continue to expand our client solutions and geographic presence, we’re excited to welcome the Linewise team to the SAM family,” said SAM President and CEO, Chris Solomon. “Their deep experience providing advanced inspections to marquee electric utilities and their strong client relationships will strengthen and grow our business. Further, we are excited to meaningfully advance our industry-leading predictive analytics, so we can better support our clients by ensuring the reliability and security of their networks.”
