The Sterling Group
Founded in 1982, The Sterling Group is a private equity investment firm defined by its focused expertise, depth of experience, operational strategy, and approach to partnering with management. We specialize in what we know best: acquiring and increasing the value of middle-market operating businesses in the fields of basic manufacturing, industrial services, and distribution.
Our Partners have a combined 100 years at Sterling. Their business experience encompasses management, operations, public accounting, commercial and investment banking, and securities law. We believe that the primary driver of returns in a portfolio company is implementing strategic and operational initiatives that enhance value. We support management to identify and implement such initiatives. Starting in the early 1980's, Sterling was a pioneer in the concept of "partnering with management." This remains the key to our strategy and is accomplished by providing incentive to and supporting strong management teams.
