Platinum Equity completes Peak acquisition

Platinum Equity has completed the acquisition of Peak Technologies, an international provider of automated identification and data collection systems,  from R.R Donnelley & Sons Co.

With the acquisition now completed, Platinum executives and Peak management, plan to collaboratively work through an operational transition process and development of the company’s ‘go-forward’ business plan. That strategy will likely focus and capitalise on Peak’s strong service infrastructure as one of the key building blocks for future success.”

Our goal is to work closely with the management team, establish a strong, profitable company and move aggressively to create new energy and enhanced enterprise value for Peak, its customers and partners.”
