Sound Partners, a lower-middle-market private equity fund started in 2022 by Zepher Loesch, and Calico Group, a private investment vehicle for co-founders Morgan Strain and Steven Brayet, have jointly acquired Tradewinds Mechanical LLC, a commercial HVAC/R (heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration) company based in Las Vegas, Nev.

Tradewinds was founded in 2009 by Joshua Symonds and Kirsten Castellanos. Tradewinds has been providing HVAC/R services to commercial clients in the Las Vegas region for nearly 15 years. The acquisition by Sound Partners and Calico Group looks to provide Tradewinds with resources and support to continue its growth and success. Tradewinds Mechanical will continue to operate under its current team, with Brayet as president of the company.

“We have already seen Sound Partners and Calico Group’s investment and expertise help us accelerate our growth and expand our service offerings,” states Symonds. “We remain committed to providing our customers with the highest quality HVAC-R services and look forward to continuing to serve the Las Vegas community.”
