Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 19, 2010 -- Riverside Partners, a private equity firm based in Boston, MA, is pleased to announce its majority investment in CTW, Inc., an orthopaedic-focused contract manufacturing company based in Hernando, Mississippi on behalf of one of its portfolio companies, Tegra Medical, headquartered in Franklin, MA.

"Riverside is very excited to invest additional capital and continue to back the existing management team at CTW as they continue to grow. We believe CTW is a world-class supplier to medical device OEMs, and its affiliation with Riverside and Tegra Medical will continue to help it meet the needs of current and future customers. CTW's strong position in the spine and trauma specialties, its long-term customer relationships, and its world-class manufacturing facility make it a perfect fit," said Philip Borden, a General Partner at Riverside.
