BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Audax Private Equity (“Audax”) today announced the creation of Renovo Home Partners (“Renovo” or the “Company”), a newly established platform providing home repair and remodel products and services.
Based in Dallas, Texas, Renovo Home Partners is a direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) provider of repair and remodel services focused on high-volume quick-turn bath, window, siding, roofing, and other remodeling services. The Company was formed through the combination of three regional remodeling businesses: Dreamstyle, Remodel USA, and Alure Home Improvements. Through its growing network of brands, Renovo’s platform provides a full range of products, installation services, and premier customer service experience to homeowners throughout the United States. Today, Renovo operates primarily in the west coast and mountain west, mid-Atlantic, and northeast regions, with a vision to expand nationwide. Built on a culture of performance and continuous improvement, the Renovo platform provides access to peer experience and insight as well as the necessary infrastructure, processes, and tech-enabled resources to help partners thrive.
“We believe the DTC home improvement market is well suited for Audax’ Buy & Build strategy, and we plan to work to scale rapidly,” said Jay Mitchell, Managing Director at Audax Private Equity. “We see an exciting opportunity to invest in and support the brands, with the goal of helping to accelerate Renovo’s growth trajectory, broaden its existing product portfolio, and expand into new geographic areas through greenfields and complete targeted acquisitions. We’re thrilled to partner with CEO John Dupuy and the entire team as this newly formed entity takes shape.”
“Given the long-term success of the three brands, we saw significant potential in combining the businesses under one umbrella to create a larger, more diversified company and ultimately working to become one of the nation’s leading DTC home repair and remodel services company,” said John Dupuy, Chief Executive Officer of Renovo Home Partners. “In seeking to find a partner to help us bring our vision to life, Audax’ track record of helping companies scale and capitalize on their growth strategies was a perfect fit for our needs at this stage in the Company’s lifecycle. We believe this investment will help to achieve our goals and provide significant benefits and opportunities to all of Renovo’s stakeholders, most notably our customers and employees. We’re proud to be a part of the Audax family and look forward to a successful and lengthy partnership.”
Ropes & Gray LLP and Fredrikson & Byron P.A. served as legal counsel to Audax.
