Crossplane Capital, a private equity firm focused on manufacturing and industrial business services firms, has acquired Hunter Leasing, the building rental division of Hunter Buildings. Founders Sam LaVergne and Mark Massey will continue to run Hunter Leasing as a standalone business.

Hunter Leasing is a Texas-based firm that specializes in safety-critical, blast-resistant building rentals. These rentals enable petrochemical firms to operate safely.

Partner of Crossplane Capital Mike Sullivan said, “The buildings and service that Hunter provides are critical to the operations of our customers. We are excited to support the expansion of Hunter’s fleet to meet the growing needs of a customer base focused on providing worker safety while maintaining and expanding petrochemical production in the United States.”
