Antares Capital is serving as administrative agent and sole lead arranger on a senior secured credit facility to support the acquisition of Winzer by ShoreView Industries.

Headquartered in Plano, TX, Winzer is a leading distributor of maintenance repair supplies.

“We’ve worked closely with Antares since the inception of our firm and value the speed and flexibility with which they deliver,” said Tom D’Ovidio, partner with ShoreView. “We were pleased to have Antares lead the financing for our investment in Winzer, the fifth transaction we’ve closed with their support within the last year.”

ShoreView Industries, a Minneapolis-based firm, was founded in 2002 and manages three funds for a combined total of $900 million. The firm partners with family and entrepreneurial-owned companies that span across several business sectors.
