May 13, 2021 – Blue River Financial Group has advised Safco Dental Supply, a leading national distributor of consumable dental supplies, and portfolio company of PNC Riverarch Capital, on a strategic acquisition.  Both the company and its leadership are exceptionally well-aligned with Safco’s future growth strategies. The acquisition strengthens the company’s already comprehensive inventory of competitively priced products, and further solidifies superior customer service practices.

The company offers over 20,000 SKUs through its industry-leading e-commerce website and printed catalogue and is committed to providing dental practices with exceptional customer service and sustainable business practices.

PNC Riverarch Capital is a Pittsburgh, PA based middle-market private equity firm, founded in 2011. The company invests in market-leading companies where it can partner with management to accelerate growth and has completed more than 90 platform and add-on acquisitions to date.

Victor Danett, Director at Blue River said, “It was a pleasure working with the professionals at Safco and PNC Riverarch, CEO John Fuerst and Managing Director Rob Dolan, who worked with the overall transaction throughout and made the acquisition move expeditiously from start to finish.” 

“This acquisition has been especially strategic for the Safco team as it marks the team’s entrance into a previously unchartered geographic market.  With the completion of this important strategic transaction, Safco and its strategic partners will be able to provide even greater speed and capabilities to its valued customers.“ stated Sara Clevenger, Principal of Blue River. “Blue River is honored to have been a part of this transaction, and we look forward to the great things ahead for the Safco and PNC Riverarch teams.”
