About Us

Morgenthaler Private Equity (“MPE”)  focuses on lower middle market leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations, and build-up investments with entrepreneur- and family-owned businesses and corporate divestitures. Our goal is simple: to partner with industry-leading management teams, provide them with the highest possible level of support as they build their companies, and create long-term shareholder value. We are focused on the lower middle market, specifically on industry-leading companies with transaction values up to $250 million and EBITDA in excess of $5 million. We are most active in two sectors: high-value manufacturing and commercial & industrial services. We invest in profitable, stand-alone companies, as well as divisions or subsidiaries of larger corporations. We are a committed partner, working closely with a portfolio company over the long-term to help it achieve its growth objectives through superior operating and financial performance. MPE contributes its extensive capital resources and unique combination of strategic, operational, and financial perspective. In addition, MPE draws on the expertise and relationships of the firm’s valuable network of operating resources including its Executive Council and On Deck Circle.

MPE has offices in Boston, MA and Cleveland, OH. Our current portfolio includes the following companies: 80/20, Appearance Technology Group, BonaDent, DecoArt, Garmat USA, Ideal Aluminum, Inkcups, Mid-States Bolt & Screw, MSHS, Precision Pipeline, Teel Plastics, Waterfront Brands and Webster Industries.
