Over the past 20 years Saugatuck has developed an investment philosophy in order to provide exceptional returns to investors while diversifying risk.
Focused on the middle market, we seek to partner with high quality, proven management teams within niche-oriented service and light manufacturing businesses. We bring the collective resources of our principals and network of seasoned operating managers and financial institutions to create sustainable operating efficiencies, increased profitability and accelerated growth for each of our portfolio companies.
We believe strongly that our principals provide an optimal mix of both operating and financing experience to add value to each of our portfolio investments. Furthermore, we are each committed to the highest degree of integrity and professionalism, which our history of relationships attests to.
