Stonebridge works with management to establish a long-term strategy for the business, with an emphasis on growth, continuous improvement and enhanced asset utilization. Stonebridge’s Operating Partners offer insights into certain areas in which the management teams of smaller businesses may be less familiar, such as management development and enhancement, systems development and implementation, worldwide product sourcing, and add-on acquisition strategy and strategic planning. Stonebridge strives to remain flexible and responsive to continually changing market conditions and to work collaboratively with management to provide the resources they need to profitably grow the business.
Stonebridge Partners has a strong operating orientation and broad expertise across a variety of businesses. The Firm invests significant capital after the acquisition to facilitate growth, whether through the expansion of a company’s facilities, purchase of new equipment, and/or acquisition of complementary businesses. Working in concert with management, Stonebridge actively seeks synergistic, and often proprietary, acquisitions for its core companies and assists with the acquisition and integration of these businesses.
