Blue Wolf frequently invests in niche manufacturing and distribution businesses in a variety of sectors. We look for opportunities where our core competencies - organizational transformation, operating discipline, and management of government, labor, or other complex constituencies - make us a natural partner for a strong management team in a business with a defensible value proposition.

Our niche investments include manufacturers and distributors of capital equipment, specialty ceramics, paper, lumber, and a variety of specialty building products, with strong franchises. While some businesses come with significant issues requiring a resolution – financial distress, a complex corporate carve out, a transition from family ownership, or a need to make costs competitive through deep operational change – others are simply seeking a capital partner, with deep operational and strategic experience, committed to growth.
