Kamps Inc., a pallet company based in Grand Rapids, Mich. and backed by Freeman Spogli & Co., has purchased Realm Companies LLC, a Midwest pallet provider, from Great Range Capital.
Realm, based in Newton, Iowa, is focused on the lifecycle management of pallets, including pallet manufacturing, recovery, recycling services, freight services, reverse logistics and on-site pallet services. Realm has 180 employees, nine warehouse and manufacturing sites and 900 trailers. Realm’s recent acquisition of WestWind Logistics LLC worked to strengthen the company’s regional capabilities.
“We have no doubt that Realm has found an excellent home in its partnership with Kamps, and we look forward to following their accomplishments in the years to come,” says Ryan Scott, managing partner at GRC.
BlackArch Partners LLC advised Realm in this transaction.
