An affiliate of New Water Capital L.P., a Boca Raton-based private equity firm focused on lower-middle market companies, announced today it has made an investment in leading Tier 1 OEM transportation LED lighting designer, manufacturer and supplier Myotek. Specializing in automotive forward lighting, Myotek is a supplier of fog lamps for several OEM automakers and other vehicle manufacturers. Based in Irvine, California, the company has sales and service locations in Detroit, Michigan; Stateline, Nevada; Dallas, Texas; Houston, Texas; Lockport, Illinois; and Fishers, Indiana, and manufacturing facilities located in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Guangdong, China.
Myotek was founded in 1997 and quickly made its reputation as a creator of innovative lighting products, such as police spot lamps, and by 2002 had established itself with major automakers. The company’s owner, Robert Harrington, who will continue as president of the company, said the partnership with New Water will provide the capital needed for the next stage of Myotek’s growth. “New Water has a proven track record of providing a strong financial foundation to allow middle-market companies like ours make the transition to their next stage of growth.
