Z Capital Partners is the private equity management division of New York-based Z Capital Group LLC. ZCP acquired both NitroSteel and Atmosphere Annealing LLC, collectively known as Premier Thermal Solutions LLC, in the transaction. The terms were not disclosed.

The NitroSteel plant is located at 9955 80th Ave. in Pleasant Prairie, where it produces ferritic nitrocarburized steel bars used mainly in fluid power applications in the agricultural, construction, mining, marine, utility and automotive sectors.

Premier Thermal Solutions plans to expand its heat treating capabilities both organically and through acquisitions using the financial and operational resources from ZCP, the companies said in a release.
