LOS ANGELES AND DES PLAINS, IL–(BUSINESS WIRE) – Partner of Angeles Equity Partners, LLC (“Angeles”) has acquired Data Clean, LLC (“Data Clean”), a provider of specialized contamination control and remediation services for critical environments. Angeles will partner with Data Clean’s previous owners, Richard Hill and Dean Sirakides. They will retain an ownership stake in the company and are focused on executing a buy-and-build strategy in the critical pollution control sector.
