NISKU, AB – Surepoint Technologies Group along with their partner ATB Private Equity is proud to announce the acquisition of Ironline Compression Services, the mechanical services and parts distribution arm of Ironline Compression LP (a portfolio company of Staple Street Capital, a leading middle-market private equity firm). Ironline Compression LP has been retained and will continue to operate its compressor package rental and leasing business, which was not included in this transaction.

Together, we are better positioned to support our clients’ needs, offer attractive employment opportunities and give back to the communities we serve.”
With a broader skill set, this combined company will introduce the expanded service lines to its current client base and leverage its combined skills to increase its Canadian presence. As they grow, the companies look forward to supporting the areas they serve with new employment opportunities, and enhanced community initiatives.
“There are numerous synergies between our companies that unite us as an innovative leader which our teams, clients, and stakeholders can be proud of and leverage for their continued growth,” says Tim Kelley, CEO of Ironline Compression. “As truly Canadian companies with a rich history in the industry, we are set up for strategic growth across Canada and to bring our combined services to the global marketplace.”
