Designer and Manufacturer of Products that Improve
the Reliability and Safety of Electric Utility Systems

Clayton Capital Partners is pleased to exclusively represent CO305 (the “Company”) in the sale of its business. Located in the Midwest, CO305 is a designer and manufacturer of products for the electric utility industry that improve operations, maximize safety and minimize power outages.


• Superior Quality and High Brand Recognition – For nearly 20 years, CO305 has established itself with electric utility engineers and specialized distributors as the provider of dependable, high-quality, American-made products serving the electric utility industry. The reliability of the Company’s products is the direct result of decades of industry experience and rigorous testing to industry standards.


• Significant Investment in Additive Manufacturing – The Company has made substantial investments in CAD software, 3D scanning and 3D printing. It uses its experience and expertise to produce prototypes, create working samples, and test products. This expertise enables the Company to both improve industry legacy products and bring new products to market faster than competitors.


• Rapid Product Development – The Company’s creative and extensive use of additive manufacturing as well as its sophisticated in-house testing capabilities significantly shorten the time it takes to bring a product to market.


• Escalating Demand For Major Product Line – The Company’s extensive line of wildlife mitigation products is in high demand due to the exorbitant cost of recent wildfires (and subsequent regulatory action related to preventing future fires), forecasts for additional fires, and intensifying public calls to protect wildlife.
