Tenex Capital Management Portfolio Companies US GreenFiber and SouthernCarlson Close Acquisitions of Central Fiber Insulation and Duo-Fast Carolinas New York, New York – November 13, 2015 – Tenex is pleased to announce the completion of two recent add-on acquisitions via two existing portfolio companies. On September 25th, US GreenFiber closed the acquisition of Central Fiber Insulation, a carveout of the environmentally-friendly cellulose insulation division of Central Fiber LLC; and on October 29th, SouthernCarlson closed the acquisition of Duo-Fast Carolinas, a North Carolina-based and family owned distributor of power-driven fasteners and pneumatic power tools used in the residential construction and general industrial manufacturing end-markets. The acquisition of Central Fiber represents the fifth add-on acquisition US GreenFiber has completed during Tenex’s less than two years of ownership.
