A partner for growth
We invest in market-leading industrial companies with under-resourced and unrealized global growth potential. Our objective is to create world-class, industry-leading companies by dedicating the experience, insight, and network of our team to drive transformational growth and help management teams create lasting value.
We are a strategic partner and valuable resource for the teams we work with, committing time, energy and resources to realize the full potential of each business.
Navigate the global middle market
We understand the complexities and opportunities of operating globally in the middle market. We believe global companies are more resilient across market cycles, and that geographic diversity provides both operating strength and downside protection. We creatively and strategically optimize operations, increase competitive advantages, and identify hidden growth potential.
