Houston-based DSS is a scaffolding supplier globally. Highlander also acquired DSS-affiliated companies including GSD Logistics and DirecTank Environmental Products. DSS designs, manufactures, and sells a variety of construction products and maintains one of the largest inventories found anywhere in the world.

Jeff Hull, president and CEO of Highlander Partners said, “Between the DSS founders, the DSS management team and the broader Highlander team, we have an unmatched level of operational and industry expertise. We view this as a platform investment that will provide Highlander strong optionality to pursue add-on acquisitions in the category.”
