Huron Capital, a middle-market private equity firm, has formed Exigent, which will provide a variety of repair, maintenance and replacement services to facility operations for education, healthcare, industrials, government and commercial customers.

Exigent will focus on technical mechanical services in the built environment such as HVAC, plumbing, power, and energy efficiency. Exigent’s launch coincides with the company’s first partnership, American Combustion Industries Inc. ACI’s owner and president Tim Kirlin will maintain an equity stake in Exigent and will join the company’s executive team.

“We are excited about launching Exigent and building out our next platform in the commercial and industrial services industry,” says Huron partner, Scott Hauncher. “This is an opportunity to put our proven playbook to work again. We will be building a world-class executive team, investing in people, training, technology, and equipment, instituting an M&A strategy, and driving integration to create what we believe will become a cohesive market-leading business.”

Honigman LLP served as legal advisor and Moss Adams LLP served as financial diligence advisor to Huron. Venable LLP served as legal advisor to ACI.
