Brian D’Amico, Summer Street managing partner and head of the firm’s environmental services investment team, commented: “After working and investing together in a successful environmental services company in the early 2000’s, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to invest again in support of the talented team at Action.”   Summer Street joins Ironwood Capital as private equity partners to finance the acquisition of these strategic assets.
