MPE partnered in the transaction with Matt Upp, who founded Precision Pipeline in 1997 and will remain in his current role as president. To support the business through its next phase of growth, MPE recruited industry veteran Mark Crowson to join the company as chief executive officer. 

“We are thrilled to be investing in Precision. The foundation Matt has laid, centered on providing safe, reliable, and high-quality solutions in demanding applications, will serve us well in the future,” said Constantine Elefter, Partner at MPE. “The important addition of Mark to the team will enable the company to pursue new growth avenues, including targeted M&A.”

Crowson commented, “Matt has built a premier business with a high performing team and superior reputation. I look forward to building on the strong culture created over the last two decades as we grow the organization.”
