West Chester, Ohio-based Contech said in the release:
- that it has new ownership in place;
- new equity investors include Anchorage Capital Group LLC, Littlejohn & Co. LLC, Tennenbaum Capital Partners LLC, and Farallon Capital Management, LLC;
- that these investors have worked with Contech, its equity partners, and its senior lenders to recapitalize the company and secure long-term financing;
