In partnership with some of the local management, an affiliate of Trailbreak Partners participated in the acquisition at bankruptcy auction of the Denver assets of a former national traffic control safety and services company. The investment thesis was that the Denver branch has a reason to exist, provides a necessary service to the marketplace, and is made up of a hard-working team of people who care about each other and about the company. The “new” company was rebranded as Colorado Barricade, to stay true to its historic roots dating back 40 years as a family owned and operated business. At the time of acquisition, the company was dark; no longer a going concern. Today the company is stronger than ever with close to 100 employees. Strategic decisions are made with the long game in mind. We are working together to position the company and its employees for long-term strength, success, and sustainability; to continue and carry on the legacy that began 40 years ago.
