Quad-C was founded by corporate executives in late 1989 to identify, acquire and help grow leading middle market companies. We have remained committed to the middle market and act as a corporate development resource for our portfolio by supporting our management teams as they execute on a jointly crafted growth strategy designed to take the business to the next level. Quad-C has significant financial resources and takes a long-term view towards value creation and growth. Over our 20+ year history, we have completed approximately 50 platform investments and more than 135 acquisitions in total (including add-ons to the portfolio).
Quad-C has successfully partnered with management teams to grow businesses, which may include adding new products or services, expanding channels of distribution, geographic expansion / globalization and often completing strategic acquisitions. By jointly developing the right strategic growth plan, and working together to obtain and apply the resources to achieve that plan, we strive to create significant growth at the company level. This growth can create substantial value for our management partners and our investors. In fact, more than 40 of our manager partners have become investors in Quad-C, committing more than $100 million to our partnerships.
Quad-C supports recapitalizations/family succession, management buyouts and industry consolidations.
