MIAMI, FL – February 6, 2024 – Boyne Capital (“Boyne”) and Grindstone Partners (“Grindstone”), are pleased to announce the add-on acquisition of AMA Repiping (“AMA” or the “Company”) by SageWater, LLC (“SageWater”), a Boyne and Grindstone portfolio company.
Founded in 2013 by Andy Peck, Mitch Todorov, and Anthony Tchakarov and headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, AMA provides a range of repipe solutions for the multifamily residential market which includes apartments and condominium communities. Their services include repiping of domestic water systems; drain, waste, and vent (DWV) piping; HVAC mechanical systems; fire suppression systems and laundry retrofits. AMA will become the Southwest Division for SageWater, complementing SageWater’s existing East Coast, West Coast, and Hawaii Divisions.
Together, SageWater and AMA will be the leading repiping and plumbing services platform nationwide. SageWater helps AMA serve its existing clients nationally, and AMA’s body of work, relationships, and reputation strengthens SageWater’s footprint in the Southwestern US. This partnership builds on SageWater’s commitment to be the go-to partner for complex repiping and value-add plumbing service nationwide.
Andy Peck, CEO of AMA, said, “Joining SageWater was a natural evolution for us to grow our presence and service offerings. Our combined resources and capabilities will allow us to expand our offerings beyond turnkey pipe replacement to include SageWater’s forensic PipeTEST solutions and their engineering and design-build capabilities. I am excited that AMA will be able to bring these expanded services to our clients.”
“We are thrilled to have AMA join the company and expand SageWater’s presence in the Southwest market,” said Peter Page, SageWater Co-Founder and CEO, “Their long history of operational excellence, strong leadership team, and stellar reputation in the Western U.S. make them an ideal fit for the SageWater family.”
Boyne Managing Partner and CEO, Derek McDowell, said, “The AMA acquisition not only bolsters SageWater’s presence nationally but also adds a high-quality group of people to the platform.” Michael Bluestein, Grindstone Managing Partner added, “Together, SageWater and AMA are able to provide the nation’s highest level of service to all customers in the continental US and Hawaii with a local presence and touch that is focused on premium customer satisfaction.”
