Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Southfield, MI, VESTA is a leading provider of temporary and permanent modular space solutions. The Company operates two divisions – (i) modular space leasing whereby it leases units from its owned fleet of over 3,200 floors to customers across a diverse range of end markets and applications, and (ii) modular construction services whereby it facilitates the design, manufacturing, logistics, and installation of modular buildings.

We wish them the best of luck in their partnership with Kinderhook.”

“Money is fungible – great partners are not. We owe our success to those investors who supported our growth and vision over the years, through the highs and lows of business and life. Balmoral provided both the capital and advice we needed to prepare our team for the next stage of our growth plan with Kinderhook,” said Dan McMurtrie, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of VESTA. “We believe firmly that VESTA will continue its rise to become the preeminent modular building provider in North America, evidenced by our significant retained ownership in the enterprise.”
