Experience

Experience comes from years of hard work and life lessons. Kirtland has been investing in lower middle market companies for nearly 40 years and has one of the most experienced investment teams in the industry. Our partners have worked together for over 15 years leading to dependability and consistency. Kirtland’s long history as a private equity investor has enabled our team to gain deep insights and industry connections within a variety of end markets, including:

  • Engineered products
  • Medical device products and services
  • Precision machining
  • Flexible and rigid packaging
  • Test and measurement
  • Direct marketing services
  • Value-added manufacturing
  • Construction services
  • Equipment rental
  • Specialty trucks and trailers

Over the last 10 years, we have completed nearly 20 platform and add-on acquisitions and successfully exited several investments providing attractive returns to our limited partners. We leverage our experience and the expertise of our investors to add value to the investments that we make and the relationships that we develop with our management teams.  One example of how we look to leverage our collective experience is our investment in Form Tech Concrete Forms.
