Generation Growth Capital Inc., a Milwaukee-based private
equity firm, has acquired Garden & Associates Inc., a
Minneapolis company that provides language outsource
services for medical settings.
The company has offered hospitals, clinics and other
healthcare facilities interpretation services for patients
with Limited English Proficiency for 30 years, according to
a Generation Growth statement.
The previous owners of Garden & Associates, Tom and Debbie
Garden, will remain with the company and the management team
and continue to operate the business.
“It was crucial for us to connect with a team that
understood our customers, shared our values and offered a
foundation to grow within the industry. GGC was undoubtedly
the right fit,” Tom Garden said.
The statement said Generation Growth plans to invest
significantly in the business to drive growth. The company
targets small businesses to collaboratively grow the
companies or transition ownership.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
“Tom and Debbie Garden have done a great job of building the
Garden & Associates business and developing a strong
reputation for quality interpretation services in the
Minnesota market,” said John Reinke, managing director at
GGC. “We plan on making investments in operational systems
and continuing to focus on the strong customer relationships
that the Gardens have developed to continue to drive the
growth of the company.”
