Stamford, CT based private equity firm Olympus Partners has acquired Omega Environmental Technologies, the aftermarket distributor of climate control products and other mission-critical components across the light and heavy-duty automotive sectors, from AEA Investors, which will remain a minority equity investor and retain a board position in the Company. Omega serves thousands of customers globally across the wholesale distribution, OE service, and automotive retail channels. The Company is headquartered in Irving, Texas and has over 20 distribution centers across the United States and Canada.

Latham & Watkins LLP represented Antares Capital in arranging a first lien credit facility to support the acquisition with a finance team led by Chicago partner Brandon Anderson and Chicago counsel Ryan LaFevers, with Chicago associate Robert Rogowski.
