KPA LLC has been acquired by CIVC Partners L.P., a Chicago-based private equity firm. KPA is a provider of HR management and environmental health and safety services, and has hosted a series of dealer webinars in conjunction with the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.
According to a press release, the acquisition was completed in partnership with KPA’s shareholders and management team and offers the company increased resources to expand its product offerings for automotive, truck and equipment retail companies into adjacent markets.
KPA will remain at its current headquarters in Lafayette, Colo., with Vane Clayton remaining as CEO and a member of the board of directors. The company’s EHS and HR management product lines include Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) that helps clients navigate regulatory compliance laws and facilitate safe, efficient work environments.
“With more than 28 years in the automotive industry, we understand how to help our clients comply with workplace regulations on both a national and local scale,” said Clayton, president and CEO of KPA. “With CIVC’s support and deep knowledge of the automotive and compliance sectors, they are truly a value-added partner that will assist with the execution of our growth strategy. With a similar longevity to KPA, and a proven track record as a high integrity investment partner for other auto industry companies, CIVC is a great fit for our culture and team.”
