Peterson Real Assets makes growth equity investment in Crossroads Paper
Salt Lake City — Peterson Real Assets, a subsidiary of Peterson Partners, Inc. has made a growth equity investment in Crossroads Paper, a 100 percent recycled paper mill to be built in the Mountain West to serve the growing demand for e-commerce, agricultural and industrial packaging in the Western United States.
“Crossroads Paper is a true environmentally sustainable real assets project that we believe will become a critical piece of the recycling, packaging, and e-commerce infrastructure of the West,” says Matthew Day, Partner with Peterson Partners. “We are passionate about helping great people build great businesses. John Sasine and Ron Sasine are not only outstanding entrepreneurs, but they are veterans of the industry. We are thrilled to be backing such an outstanding team.”
Peterson Real Assets invests with a long-term view. It looks for opportunities in the resources and real assets sectors to make both pre-development and commercialization stage investments into projects that can have a long-term positive impact on the industries and communities in which they operate.
“Finding partners who not only have an appetite for large-scale real assets projects but also believe in our mission of sustainability was critical. Peterson Partners is the ideal partner for our company’s next phase,” says Crossroads Paper CEO John Sasine.
The Crossroads Paper site selection process is underway, with a final determination expected by year end.
Peterson Partners has invested in other impact-oriented growth companies in Utah, including Packsize, Cotopaxi and Blue Raven Solar.
