"We fully intend to help grow Rand McNally through organic and acquisitive investment. Our focus will be on breakthrough products and solutions and first-class customer service," said Roark, an Operating Partner at TELEO Capital, which now owns Rand McNally.

On Friday, Rand McNally announced that TELEO Capital had completed acquisition of the 164-year-old company. In the announcement, Rand McNally noted that TELEO Capital has a strong track record of accelerating both organic and inorganic growth initiatives to build best-in-class companies.

The commitment by new ownership ensures that Rand McNally will continue the trajectory it put in place a decade ago.

In that market, Rand McNally provides an innovative, proprietary fleet management platform as well as mileage and routing software used by carriers, shippers and third-party logistics providers.

At the same time, Rand McNally launched a number of innovative firsts in the retail marketplace (where it continues to produce and distribute printed atlases and other published product), including OverDryve and TND dashboard tablets and ClearDryve® 2-in-1 headsets that convert to headphones.
