The investors’ objective is to partner with existing personnel to grow the company while preserving the culture, history, and legacy of the business.

About The Principals:

After running several successful businesses throughout their careers and subsequently selling many of these business interests, the investors are now looking to purchase a lower middle market manufacturing operation. Their objective is to partner with existing personnel to grow the company while preserving the culture, history, and legacy of the business.

The principals do not plan to assume operational roles, but are in a position to provide valuable guidance, networking and other resources to achieve long-term growth and stability. Our investors have extensive experience in manufacturing operations and are focused on niche manufacturing companies. They are seeking a company with an established, proprietary product offering, a stable customer base, good growth potential, and experienced personnel.

One of the investment partners is a retired partner in a CPA firm. He recently led a mid-sized Michigan-based institution through a period of significant growth and successfully sold this institution to a larger competitor. The other partner’s experience lies in manufacturing and operations. He and his family continue to have a controlling interest in a large, Michigan-based manufacturing operation. Under his leadership, the company has grown significantly over the last two decades and has a dominate market position within its market segment.
