Specialty Manufacturing and Value-Added Distribution Companies

Riverside seeks to invest in special, market-leading companies with attractive EBITDA margins (15%+), strong customer value propositions and clear differentiation from competitors, with the objective that the companies deliver:

  • Recurring-demand products

  • Attractive growth opportunities – strong secular trends, add-on acquisitions and/or cyclical recovery

  • Ownership of the end customer relationship

  • Diversified customer bases, end markets, suppliers, etc.

  • Services – Many of our specialty manufacturing investments have a strong service component to complement the product offerings

The Right Choice for Adding Value & Growth

Riverside loves growth, particularly when it comes in the form of both revenue and margins. We support growth through:

  • Investing in new product development

  • Leveraging Riverside’s global footprint to enter new markets and/or develop low-cost production capabilities

  • Introducing or building upon progressive manufacturing practices

  • Adding new sales channels or horsepower in existing channels

  • Building out the management team to prepare the company for the future

  • Strengthening IT systems and processes

  • Developing a targeted add-on acquisition strategy — on average Riverside completes one acquisition for each platform company acquired, helping drive strategic objectives
