Tall Tree Foods, a Houston, Texas-based portfolio company of Altamont Capital Partners, acquired Klement Sausage Co., Inc., a leading manufacturer of premium sausage based in Milwaukee, Wis. Klement’s has a portfolio of smoked, fresh and summer sausage, snack sticks and deli meats and brings a combination of additional scale and geographic expansion to Tall Tree Foods.

“We are excited to expand on Klement’s successful history,” says Tim Bruer, chief executive officer of Tall Tree Foods. “Klement’s is a strong regional brand with the potential for growth in both its current markets and beyond.”

Ray Booth, the current CEO of Klement’s, will continue to lead the business along with the current management team. The Klement’s plants and offices will also remain in Milwaukee.

“We are pleased to have the future of the Klement’s brand in the hands of new ownership with Altamont Capital and Tall Tree Foods,” says John Klement, former chairman and CEO of Klement’s. “I want to thank the many employees and other family members who have worked so hard to get the business to where it is today. We look forward to the future growth of the brand.”
