Tecum Capital Announces Investment in Accelevation, LLC

Pittsburgh, PA – Tecum Capital (“Tecum”) is proud to announce its investment in Accelevation, LLC (“Accelevation”), a vertically integrated group of manufacturing companies serving the data center, electric vehicle, and robotic end markets. The Company is headquartered in Springboro, OH.

Accelevation is a portfolio company of LFM Capital, a Nashville, TN based lower middle market private equity firm focused on control investments in manufacturing and industrial services business. LFM Capital and the Accelevation management team will be further supported by a strategic capital investment from Centerfield Capital Partners and Tecum Capital to enhance the Company’s ability to execute organic and inorganic growth initiatives.

The strategic investment was utilized in part to finance the Company’s recent acquisition of Instor Solutions (“Instor”), a data center equipment integrator focused on low-voltage electrical equipment build out and installation. The company builds out wholesale colocation, lab, and data center spaces from whitespace to operation-ready, reducing overall build times and project costs. Instor is headquartered in Fremont, CA with an additional European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.

The Deal Team from Tecum consisted of Matt Harnett, Husnain Safdar, and Dominic Noel.
