Crossplane Capital, a Dallas-based private equity firm, has partnered with Sal Chavarria to acquire a controlling interest in Viking Fence, a provider of fence rentals, sanitation rentals, fence installations and building products and services to commercial and residential markets throughout Texas.

Viking Fence was founded in 1972 and is headquartered in Austin, Texas. Chavarria acquired ownership of Viking in 2006 and has led its expansion into the Dallas-Forth Worth and Houston areas. Since 2014, Viking has invested to grow its fencing and sanitation rental divisions across each of its markets.

“We are eager to support the continued expansion of Viking’s fence installation, supply distribution and site rental operations to meet the needs of its customers throughout Texas with the same level of high-quality service that Viking has been known for over the last 50 years,” states Ben Eakes, managing partner of Crossplane Capital.
