Egis Capital Partners, a leading private equity firm focused on the Security and Protection industry, announced today that it has partnered with Mission Critical Partners, LLC, a leading provider of consulting and life cycle management services to the public safety sector. Headquartered in Port Matilda, Pennsylvania, MCP offers advisory and support services to public and private entities seeking to improve the communication of critical information to first responders. The investment is the first of Egis Capital Fund III and falls squarely within the firm's strategy to invest in technology-enabled businesses focused on the protection of people, assets, and information.
MCP enables 911 and public safety answering points ("PSAPs") to leverage significant advancements in telecommunication to improve the flow of voice and data to first responders, leading to better outcomes in emergency situations. "We believe MCP will play an important role in the creation of safer and smarter cities across the United States and look forward to providing the financial and strategic resources needed to facilitate this transformative opportunity. MCP has an exceptionally talented management team and outstanding depth of experience in the public safety sector," said Robert Chefitz, Founder and Managing Partner at Egis. Through the MCP platform, Egis plans to implement an organic growth strategy in the emergency response space, complemented by carefully selected acquisitions.
MCP's management team believes the decision to partner with Egis will allow them to better serve their existing customer base while pursuing attractive growth opportunities. The investment represents the first outside capital in MCP. "This partnership will enable us to grow our business in new and exciting ways by expanding to new geographies. It will also create opportunities for us to better serve our clients and offer greater room for growth to our employees," said Kevin Murray, MCP's President and CEO.
