DETROIT, July 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Leading lower-mid-market private equity firm Huron Capital Partners (“Huron Capital”) today announced that its HVAC and plumbing installation, retrofit and repair platform, Pueblo Mechanical & Operation (“Pueblo”), has acquired Infinity Contractors (“Infinity”), a transaction that will give the company a strong and growing presence in Texas.

We are confident that we can build on these efforts as we work together to drive growth into the future.”
Pueblo has completed seven acquisitions since Huron Capital partnered with Bueschel in 2017 to acquire Pueblo and pursue an ExecFactor® buy-and-build strategy in the commercial HVAC and plumbing market in the Sun Belt region of the United States.
“There is a strong alignment of culture and pride in work between Pueblo and Infinity,” said Huron Capital Partner, Scott Hauncher. “With its solid reputation, experience and resources, Infinity is well positioned to be a platform for meaningful growth across the region.”
