New Mountain identified Qualus as part of its multi-year “deep-dive” sector initiative in infrastructure and utility services, and had been tracking the company since 2018. New Mountain was able to leverage its expertise in the sector to become Qualus’s partner of choice and closed the acquisition in March 2021.
