Why We Succeed

Our team has successfully invested together in the lower middle market over many years. We share a common vision about what it takes to build successful manufacturing and industrial businesses that enables families and business owners to leave strong and lasting legacies. 

We share a passion and commitment to reinvigorate the U.S. manufacturing sector and support its on-shore renaissance. We know first-hand the challenges and rewards of achieving operational excellence and believe that a continuous process improvement mindset and discipline are at the heart of a company’s ability to fully realize its potential.

As career operators who have been in the shoes of our business partners, we offer respectful and collaborative management mentoring and real world operating experience. We understand the trade-offs and speak your language. We can help assess operational risk, identify growth opportunities and addressable market expansion, utilize modern marketing and sales techniques, and achieve supply chain optimization and information system upgrades. 

We draw on an exceptional operating talent network gathered over distinguished academic and corporate careers to support management recruiting. We seek to attract operationally-focused, leadership-driven executives with strong Lean experience, established growth track records and a hunger to run their own enterprises in America’s heartland communities.
