Electric &
Gas Utility Sector

IMB Partners is a uniquely positioned private equity investment company that is committed to building large Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) certified companies that support the electric and gas utility sector in the United States.

The electric and gas utility sector is forecasted to spend hundreds of billions on maintenance and new infrastructure in response to updating outdated infrastructure and to increased demand from population growth.

Simultaneously, there is more awareness and interest from the gas and electric utility industry to do more business with MBE companies and companies that are good corporate citizens in their local markets. 

The convergence of these factors positions IMB Partners to be a value-added partner to the suppliers in this industry.

Industries where
diverse suppliers matter

In the Electric and Gas utility sector, IMB invests in middle market companies that support large electric and gas utility companies and their prime vendors. With our ownership, we have the ability to maintain or certify these businesses as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) if there is an incremental business advantage.
