Charlotte, NC (July 20, 2017) – Ridgemont Equity Partners, a middle market private equity investor, today announced the acquisition of HemaSource Intermediate Holdings, LLC (“HemaSource,” or the “Company”), the leading technology-enabled distributor of medical products to the plasma collection industry.
