D&H United, a portfolio company of Wind Point Partners and a leading provider of mission-critical maintenance, testing and inspection services for fueling stations and electric vehicle charging infrastructure, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Double Check Company.
Headquartered in Kansas City, MO, Double Check Company is a turnkey provider of maintenance, distribution and installation services for retail fueling systems and car wash stations. Since its founding in 1966, DCC has developed long-standing relationships with a diverse base of blue-chip national and regional fueling franchises, convenience stores and car washes. The combined companies will have approximately 700 team members, including 500 field technicians and 22 branches operating across the United States. The acquisition of Double Check Company marks D&H’s entry into the Missouri and Kansas markets and extends its service footprint across the Midwest. The combination will further increase D&H’s service focus and will expand on its growing capabilities in carwash and automotive maintenance services.
Bo Sasnett, CEO of D&H United stated, “We are honored to welcome the Double Check team to our D&H United family. Double Check is a highly respected company with a 55-year history in our industry. They have a great team who are known for quality work and excellent customer care. Our companies have similar values with a focus on taking care of our people and providing excellent service to our customers.”
Phil Farrell, CEO of Double Check added, “I did not want to sell the company to just any buyer. I wanted to find a company that was the right fit and one that provided opportunities for the continued success of the people, the business and a partner who would work hard to maintain the respect that Double Check has earned in the industry. Bo and D&H United were just that company.”
Konrad Salaber, Managing Director at Wind Point commented, “Strengthening our presence in the attractive Southeast and Midwest markets and adding complementary service capabilities are the key pillars of the D&H value creation plan. Phil and his team have built an outstanding operation and we look forward to supporting the growth of the combined businesses.”
Double Check Company represents the second acquisition for D&H United since partnering with Wind Point in September of 2022 and the seventh acquisition since the Company’s founding in 2015. D&H’s acquisition strategy will continue to focus on partnering with companies that provide mission-critical maintenance, testing and compliance services for fueling and electric vehicle charging infrastructure nationwide. Sasnett stated, “We continue to deliver on our growth strategy and are dedicated to building the best company for our team and customers as we service the dual infrastructure for both vehicle fueling and charging in the U.S. market.”
Wind Point is a longtime investor in route-based services and technical businesses, with select current and prior investments including Smart Care, Pavion, Vertex, Kleinfelder, Valicor, Dicom, and AIR-serv.
