Where We Invest

Strategic Capital for Industrial Businesses.

We invest in industrial businesses that share our values, benefit from our resources and can prosper as a member of our family for many years into the future. We invest not just financial capital, but shared management expertise, cutting edge technologies and a global network of cooperative businesses.

Our Approach


Long Term View

Long Term Focus

Decentralized Operating Structure

Decentralized Operating Structure

Our portfolio management teams operate independently but share resources, customer and vendor relationships, and experience with the broader The Heico Companies organization. This decentralized but cooperative organizational structure unleashes synergies between our businesses while encouraging entrepreneurship.
