Eagle Merchant Partners, an Atlanta-based private equity firm, has made an investment in Eskola Roofing & Waterproofing, a commercial roofing contractor with locations in Tennessee and Kentucky.

Eskola offers commercial roofing and waterproofing services with a customer base centered on education, infrastructure and healthcare. The current operators of the company, Jon Eskola and Ben Eskola, will remain in their leadership positions. Carl Franseen has been named chief financial officer.

“We were attracted to Eskola for its strong customer relationships, exceptional growth record and commitment to safety,” comments Brady Sumner, vice president of Eagle. “As we spent additional time with the leadership, we knew this was the team Eagle wanted to partner with to help expand its services throughout southeast U.S.”
