Bertram Capital announced that it acquired Garland, Texas-based BearCom from LKCM Headwater Investments. The investment in BearCom represents the fifth platform acquisition completed in Bertram’s recently closed third fund. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“As we considered potential partners, Bertram Capital really stood out in what they bring to the table,” said BearCom CEO Mark Kroh. “Extensive telecommunications and technology market expertise, coupled with a shared vision for the opportunities to expand BearCom’s business, made Bertram our preferred choice. We have already begun to engage with the Bertram Labs team and believe their capabilities will be highly beneficial to our business across multiple functions.”

In recent months, BearCom has acquired several mobile radio dealers in Canada and the United States.

BearCom’s senior leadership team, in conjunction with Bertram, will continue to pursue its buy-and-build strategy of acquiring similar businesses with strong technical services capabilities and entrenched customer relationships in complementary geographies across North America. BearCom said it plans to accelerate organic growth and enhance operational efficiency by leveraging Bertram Labs, Bertram’s proprietary in-house digital marketing and software development team.

“We have been extremely impressed with the duration and diversity of BearCom’s tenured customer relationships that include airlines, education, manufacturing and petrochemical plants, distribution centers, hotels, public-safety agencies, retailers and many other industry segments,” said Jared Ruger, partner at Bertram. “We are excited to harness the breadth of BearCom’s resources to deliver value for customers and expand the market share for longstanding partners like Motorola Solutions.”

Founded in 1981, BearCom is a value-added integrator and reseller of mission- and business-critical communications solutions, serving more than 20,000 commercial, industrial and government customers across North America.
