Working With Us

Partnering with Supply Chain Equity offers the highest probability of maximizing the value of a distribution business through our access to the most comprehensive pool of industry resources such as our wide network of industry insiders and our proprietary distribution-related database. We have assembled the distribution industry's most experienced investment team, from strategic, operating and financial perspectives, to work with business owners, entrepreneurs, and management teams to create shareholder value.

When we make an investment, we understand that value is not created overnight and we are likely to be involved with each company for several years. We are excited to collaborate with management teams during good times but more importantly, we are ready to be called upon during down periods to assist management teams as they seek to grow and improve their organizations.

The following are examples of specific opportunities for us to utilize our competencies to actively support management teams in pursuit of our mutual goals.

Strategic and Operating Resources

Our principals, investors and advisors are dedicated to working with management teams to evaluate and implement business strategies and operating plans. We support our portfolio companies in many critical aspects:

  • Strategic direction for growth and profitability
  • Sales growth opportunities through development of new territories and branches, value added services, sales force expansion and pricing enhancements
  • Cost control programs and strategies
  • Integrating acquisitions and driving synergies
  • Relationships with top consultants and advisors, industry leaders and sector experts
  • Improving the infrastructure to accommodate growth and efficiencies
  • Source of complementary management and board talent

Financial Resources

Supply Chain Equity's financial experience and expertise can provide a solid foundation for growing companies. In addition to our own capital, we offer many other financial resources:

  • Expertise in implementing a capital structure to ensure financial flexibility
  • Dedicated relationships with key lenders
  • Internal financial control, including the budgeting and planning process and cash flow management
  • Participation in identifying, analyzing, executing and financing acquisitions

We believe our investment objectives are best accomplished when management and employees participate in value creation. Hence, we offer management teams substantial performance-based incentives, including equity ownership.

We assist management teams as they seek to grow and improve their organizations.
