Roosevelt, UT– May 10, 2024 – Wincove Private Holdings, LP (“Wincove”) announced today that it has led a transaction to recapitalize and provide growth capital to Elite Equipment Rental, LLC and its subsidiary, Elite Parts, LLC (“Elite” or the “Company”).

Elite is a full-service provider of hydro excavation trucks (“hydrovacs”) and ancillary equipment to industrial, utility, construction, and municipal service providers.  Hydrovacs use high pressure water and vacuum technology to excavate and clean in a manner that is safer and more precise than traditional methods.  Elite maintains a large fleet of “good as new” hydrovacs for rent, and also provides new and resale equipment, parts, and best-in-class maintenance services.  Wincove is partnering with Founder and President, Chris Chapman, who will remain in his current leadership role.

“Chris and Roger Chapman have built a unique and differentiated business over the past 10 years,” said John Lenahan, Partner at Wincove. “We are very excited to partner with them and the team at Elite, and to support the Company in its next phase of growth.”

Chris Chapman, added, “this recapitalization is an important step in fueling our growth.  We are excited to continue to build Elite, including our fleet and geographic footprint, all while continuing to deliver the best equipment and service to our customers.”
