Stabilizing, growing and enhancing value
Industrial Opportunity Partners, LLC ("IOP"), based in Evanston, IL, is a private equity investment firm focused on acquiring and managing middle-market manufacturing and value-added distribution companies, typically with revenues between $30 million and $350 million. IOP has a particular investment focus on enhancing the operations and optimizing the cost structures of the businesses it acquires. Since its inception, IOP has raised $460 million of committed capital.
IOP's investment and operating professionals have extensive backgrounds in acquiring and operating middle-market manufacturing companies. Specifically, IOP's dedicated and full-time Board of Operating Principals is comprised of seasoned business executives with the ability to guide and assist management teams in order to drive operational improvements, implement lean manufacturing initiatives, accelerate cost structure improvements and pursue growth opportunities. These extensive operating resources serve to differentiate IOP from other similarly sized private equity firms.
Given the resources of its Operating Principals, IOP is a "hands-on" acquirer capable of pursuing a broad spectrum of investment situations. Accordingly, IOP's investment targets range from profitable companies requiring additional management or other support to reach their full potential, to companies experiencing significant operational or financial distress. IOP’s principals seek to build upon their track record of stabilizing, growing and enhancing the value of such businesses.
