OpenGate Capital, a private buyout firm in Los Angeles, purchased AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution division for $14 million in December. The division, renamed Pacific Crest Transformers, manufactures medium-voltage electrical power transformers for industrial use. According to OpenGate founder and managing partner Andrew Nikou, OpenGate will act as an air cushion for the Medford-based Pacific Crest management team, assisting them in doubling the company’s annual revenue in the next two years. “We will pursue a buy and build strategy in order to elevate PCT’s presence in this newly acquired marketplace,” he says. Pacific Crest employs 120 workers.

Market of Choice is on a tear. In 2012 the 35-year-old Eugene-based grocery chain opened a central kitchen/distribution center in its hometown. The market opened its third Portland store in the Cedar Mill neighborhood this year; another outpost in Bend broke ground in March. A fourth Portland location is slated for the inner southeast “LOCA” development, a mixed-use project featuring condos and retail. Revenues in 2014 were $175 million, a double-digit increase over 2013. CEO Rick Wright discusses growth, market trends and how he keeps new “foodie” grocery clerks happy.
