Lazer Spot has more than 100 blue chip customers in the consumer packaged goods, food and beverage, pulp and paper, retail, and other industrial sectors, servicing more than 400 sites, according to Harvest Partners.

The deal will help Lazer Spot grow organically and by acquisition, leaders of both firms said. Lazer Spot will continue to be led by CEO Adam Newsome, and its management team will remain "significant owners of the business," Harvest Partners said. Additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.
