Atlanta, GA (November 20, 2012) – MSouth Equity Partners, an Atlanta-based private equity firm, announced the closing of its newest investment. In partnership with management, MSouth formed EnergyCo. Holdings.
EnergyCo. Holdings is the parent company of Power Pro‐Tech Services, a leading provider of generator maintenance services to blue chip commercial customers, and, a related company, Power Generation Services, a newly‐formed service bureau company that will enable Power Pro-Tech Services' customers and other commercial owners of distributed generation assets to sell power into North American deregulated energy markets.
