About Us

Kirtland Capital Partners is a Cleveland, Ohio-based private equity fund that has been investing in lower middle market companies for nearly 40 years. We are a relationship-oriented firm with Partners who have worked together for over 15 years to help our portfolio companies achieve their growth objectives and deliver attractive returns to our investors.

Since its inception in 1977, Kirtland has focused on investing in niche manufacturing and value-added business service and distribution companies that provide an opportunity for us to partner with management teams to increase long-term value through growth and strategic, operational and financial initiatives.

Kirtland has Midwestern values founded on the belief that strong relationships, discipline, experience, and good judgment drive long-term investing success. An unwavering commitment to this philosophy continues to serve as our foundation, as does the value we place on building long-term partnerships with our management teams, investors, operating resources, service providers, and financing and deal sources.

Relationships Matter at Kirtland.
