DENVER , CO, UNITED STATES, April 14, 2021 / — Black Lake Capital announces investment, alongside Source Capital, in SCApath LLC and Spinnaker SCS LLC to support the merger of their supply chain consulting organizations.

Spinnaker, focused on Supply Chain Strategy and Planning and SCApath, focused on Supply Chain Execution and Omnichannel Fulfillment, provide a complementary set of services that, when combined, will allow customers to address a broader set of supply chain challenges and opportunities. The new company, to be known as Spinnaker SCA, will be based in Boulder, CO, and will feature all members of the SCApath and Spinnaker leadership teams as well as combine the full consulting and technology organizations of each firm.

"We were impressed by Black Lake’s understanding of our business and the technology required to support our customers’ supply chains," says Evan McCaig, Chief Executive Officer of Spinnaker SCA. "Our now combined 50 years of expertise includes supply chain design and strategy, planning, omnichannel, distribution and logistics management, and change management. We have seen dramatic shifts over the last decade in the supply chain industry – and particularly in 2020 – that signal we are now front and center in driving growth, resilience, and measurable value for our client organizations."

"Black Lake values our expertise and vision for combining the two organizations," said John Sharkey, Chief Operating Officer of Spinnaker SCA. "Black Lake provides capital for growth and strategic guidance while allowing our management team to continue to deliver the outstanding services our clients expect. The combination of Spinnaker and SCApath brings together two organizations with similar business and IT leadership clientele as well as similar philosophies for how we work to make our customers successful – but different and complementary areas of supply chain expertise. The combination provides an exciting opportunity to do much more to help our customers as well as grow the combined organization."

"We are excited about the potential of the combined SCApath and Spinnaker organizations. The two businesses bring together market-leading expertise in supply chain design, execution, and technology," said Black Lake’s Managing Partner, Chad Scripps. "We look forward to supporting management as they bring on additional talented team members, new customer relationships, and further services for their existing clients."
