Resilient Infrastructure Group Acquired by Partners Group
Investment will accelerate growth of Resilient’s diversified, multi-industry water platform for private and public sector clients looking to solve site-specific treatment needs
PORTLAND, Ore.– Resilient Infrastructure Group, a recognized leader in water as a service and focused on acquiring, developing and managing a portfolio of wastewater, water and related infrastructure assets in the U.S. and Canada, is pleased to announce its acquisition by Partners Group, a leading global private markets firm, on behalf of its clients. The acquisition will allow Resilient to continue building a diversified, multi-industry water platform operating in the multibillion-dollar distributed water and wastewater sectors, including wastewater treatment and reuse infrastructure, wastewater-to-renewable natural gas facilities and potable water infrastructure.
Resilient provides distributed water and wastewater solutions to both private and public sector clients looking to solve their site-specific treatment needs. Water infrastructure investment is needed to ensure sustainable operations in heavy water use sectors — such as food and beverage, agriculture, manufacturing, energy, technology, healthcare and education — and in municipalities confronting increasingly disruptive climate events.
“Resilient took a pragmatic approach in identifying the right partner who understood not only the water market opportunity but the underlying need to invest in a sustainable and responsible manner,” said Resilient CEO, Ben Vitale. “Partners Group provides Resilient with the ideal market leadership we were looking for and allows us to scale into a world-class water-as-a-service company.”

Located in Boardman, Oregon, Threemile was recognized as a winner of the 2020 U.S. Dairy Sustainability Awards by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy.
Resilient invests in new and existing infrastructure assets and works with a variety of water industry partners that supply technical, development, construction or operational services essential to infrastructure deployment and operations. Uniquely, Resilient’s investment-stage focus ranges from greenfield development through existing asset acquisitions.
Ed Diffendal, Managing Director, Private Infrastructure Americas, Partners Group, states: “We are excited to partner with the seasoned management team of Resilient to develop critical water infrastructure such as the Threemile wastewater-to-RNG facility.”
