A History of Success
The Heico Companies is the parent holding company for a diverse portfolio of manufacturing, construction, and industrial services businesses. We were founded by Michael Heisley in 1979 when he sold his home and used the proceeds to buy his first company. Building on his legacy, we have grown into a broad and diverse organization with operations in 19 countries across five continents. In our earlier years, we focused on distressed investing.
Today, we look to acquire performing businesses that complement our existing operations. As a buy, hold, and build investor, we have owned many of our operations for over 30 years. A key factor in our growth is our commitment to reinvest earnings in support of both organic growth and new acquisitions. We also strive to retain the talented people in the companies that we acquire; we recognize that their diverse skill sets, product knowledge, and customer relationships have contributed to our success.
We are proud that our operations are certified as woman owned, operated, and controlled in those countries that formally recognize this important classification. Our Chairman, Emily Heisley Stoeckel, provides strategic direction to the organization and leads The Heico Companies’ Board of Directors. She has devoted more than 20 years to the growth and development of The Heico Companies’ diverse portfolio of companies and has extensive experience in operations, strategic planning, financial analysis, financing, and risk management. This certification allows us to become better partners to many of our clients by helping them to meet their supplier diversity requirements.

We take pride in conducting business as a good corporate citizen in the communities in which we operate around the world. We have a social obligation to know and follow all laws and regulations, pay our share of taxes, conserve energy, protect the environment, display good citizenship, and act with integrity in all of our business activities, domestically and internationally. We respect and honor cultural differences in the various communities and countries in which we operate. And we encourage our employees, partners, and customers to report any misconduct via our Helpline.
We recognize that our companies are important members of their communities with responsibilities to operate cleanly and safely, to contribute to their local economies, and to cooperate with local institutions. Wherever there’s The Heico Companies, there are people ready to devote their energy, ideas, and resources to support their community. We have a long tradition of being a good neighbor and helping select charities that strive to improve the world we all share.
