High Street Capital is pleased to announce its investment in Southern Design in partnership with the founders to fund the company’s growth plan.  Our investing and operating teams will be working closely with the management team to scale Southern Design’s installation capacity, professionalize back-office functions to allow the founders to focus on new business development, hire additional project managers to oversee increasing work volumes, and continue to organically grow market share in the Atlanta MSA.

Southern Design, located in Cumming, Georgia, provides landscaping and concrete foundation and finishing services to large, sophisticated home builders in the greater Atlanta MSA.  The company’s success has been driven by a focus on quality and customer service and facilitated by a large and growing network of trusted and quality-oriented subcontractor partners.

This acquisition represents High Street’s third platform investment for Fund V.  Charlie Bossart, an HSC Vice President, commented, “Since its founding in 2009, Southern Design has become an indispensable trade partner to its customers by providing its superior landscaping and concrete services on-time and at attractive prices.  With an unwavering focus on quality and efficiency, and by always keeping the interests of the customer in mind, the company has consistently grown both with existing customers and by bringing new ones into the fold.  High Street Capital is excited to partner with Southern Design to continue this tradition.”
