Allied Industrial Partners-backed CES Power acquires Brickworks

CES Power, a global provider of mobile power generation, distribution and temperature control equipment backed by industrial-focused private equity firm Allied Industrial Partners (AIP), has acquired Brickworks. Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Brickworks is a provider of smart mapping software, Geographic Information System (GIS) services and zero-emissions infrastructure to the entertainment industry. 
Founded in 2017 by Sam Simmons and Peter Winer, Brickworks has developed site plans and design services for over 150 music festivals, live events, and related projects. Brickworks’ proprietary software turns CAD site plans into online and interactive smart maps, enabling telemetry and real-time location data to be used as the backbone for site operations and providing real-time data to live event planners. Brickworks’ unified dashboard aims to enhance operational oversight by integrating dynamic data feeds such as security cameras, heavy equipment locations, and severe weather alerts on top of a CAD site plan unique to each live event.
Sam Simmons, Brickworks’ CEO, will join CES Power as Chief Technology Officer in conjunction with the transaction. 
CES Power, which was acquired by AIP in June 2021, will continue to actively seek further add-on acquisitions in areas of strategic interest. The Brickworks acquisition represents CES Power’s third acquisition, following the company’s previously announced acquisitions of Florida-based Production Power in December 2021 and California-based West Coast Cinema in March 2022.
