Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL) announced the sale of Arctic Industries and Store It Cold, a portfolio company of Stoic Holdings, to Kinzie Capital Partners LP, a private equity firm based in Chicago. 

With locations in Miami, Florida, and Los Angeles, California, Arctic is a leading manufacturer and distributor of engineered walk-in coolers, freezers and insulating enclosures serving the foodservice, commercial, industrial, healthcare, hospitality, agriculture and home-use markets.
