Janus Global Operations announced that it has been acquired by an affiliate of DC Capital Partners Management, LP, a private equity investment firm headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia.
Janus provides integrated stability operations services including humanitarian munitions remediation, environmental remediation and services, risk management, and logistics and lifecycle support solutions to public and private sector clients worldwide.
Thomas J. Campbell, Founder and Managing Partner of DC Capital and the new Chairman of Janus, said, “Janus is a globally recognized leader in munitions remediation and stability operations. The Company possesses all of the characteristics we seek in our investments: they are extremely well regarded by their customers, have a highly trained and experienced workforce that provides mission critical services, and they operate with the highest ethical standards.”
Recently, Janus has been spotlighted by ABC News and PBS for its work clearing improvised explosive devices, landmines, and other explosive hazards ISIS left behind as it was expelled from Ramadi and Mosul, Iraq. Janus’s work in Iraq has allowed more than one million displaced persons to return to their homes. As part of its integrated stability operations portfolio of capabilities, Janus is the world’s largest commercial munitions remediation company.
“What Janus has accomplished to this point is extremely impressive,” Mr. Campbell said. “DC Capital’s acquisition of Janus will provide the Company with additional resources and the opportunity to collaborate with our other DC Capital portfolio companies, to expand services to clients and provide a full continuum of capabilities. Janus’s current management team will continue to lead the company.”
