West Palm Beach, FL – Comvest Partners (“Comvest”) is pleased to announce a minority investment in Atomic Transport, LLC (“Atomic”), a leading provider of outsourced long‐haul waste transport and transfer station management, providing key services through long‐term contracts for large waste companies.
Headquartered in Chattanooga, TN, Atomic leverages its fleet of equipment to transport municipal solid, liquid, and construction & demolition waste from waste transfer stations to landfills. Today, Atomic provides services through over 17 customer terminals across 14 states.
“Shayne and Mike McCallie have been working in this industry for over 20 years and have built a leading waste hauler that provides high-quality services for their waste management customer base,” said Palmer Rosemond, Principal at Comvest. “We are excited to partner with Atomic and the McCallie brothers, leveraging a new capital structure which optimizes debt-service cost and facilitates easy access to growth capital to serve existing and new contracts. Atomic is very well positioned to continue providing high-quality waste hauling services to a growing market, driven by stable waste volumes and the growth in transfer stations as landfills continue to move away from population centers.”
“This transaction represents an important milestone for Atomic. We will continue to support our existing customers, but with our new financing arrangement, we are much better positioned to support new contracts with new equipment in current and new geographies,” said Shayne McCallie, Atomic Partner & President.
“We are impressed with the significant resources and experience that Comvest brings to the table and believe the partnership will allow us to tackle new growth opportunities,” said Mike McCallie, Atomic Managing Partner. “I am proud of the dedication and significant growth achieved by our team and believe Comvest will help accelerate our trajectory and strengthen our customer relationships.”
“Shayne and Mike have built a best-in-class company, which provides tremendous value to their waste management customers,” said Tom Clark, Senior Partner at Comvest. “We look forward to partnering with the Atomic team as they continue their rapid expansion, becoming the industry-leading hauler of choice.”
Raymond James acted as financial advisor to Atomic Transport in connection with the transaction.
