Blue Sage Capital, an Austin, Texas-based private equity firm, has completed its investment in Baker Manufacturing Co., LLC, Evansville, Wisconsin, which makes residential, industrial, municipal, and environmental water well equipment and accessories, as well as specialized rotary gear pumps and ductile and gray iron castings. 

“Our partnership with Blue Sage Capital represents an exciting inflection point in Baker’s history,” said the company’s president and CEO, Don Wesdell. “We are looking forward to working alongside the Blue Sage team to continue to launch new water systems and pump products, expand into new geographies, pursue strategic acquisitions, and invest in our business.”

Baker has an impressive breadth of product offering and strong manufacturing expertise, and the vertical integration with the foundry has allowed the company to successfully navigate the challenging supply chain environment and expand market share recently. We are thrilled about this new partnership and are eager to execute on our joint strategy for growth.”
