Warren Equity Partners (WEP) is a private equity firm that invests in lower middle market companies primarily in North America. WEP invests in established companies where additional capital and operating resources can accelerate growth, targeting the industrial and business services sectors with a focus on aging infrastructure trends. WEP invests in the form of buyouts and recapitalizations. Our approach is to establish strong partnerships with management teams and transform lower middle market companies into market leaders through organic growth and add-on acquisitions.

WE ARE STRATEGIC INVESTORS WITH A BUY AND BUILD APPROACH
We are buy and build investors; we identify strong platform candidates, partner with talented managers, and allocate additional capital for both organic growth and add-on acquisitions. The principals of WEP have a complementary blend of investment experience, operational capability, and financing expertise that is particularly important in the lower middle market, where businesses are often ripe for financial and operational improvements.
WEP seeks to generate return on investment through underlying growth and operating improvements in our portfolio companies. We believe strongly that middle market companies are able to best achieve their growth potential with more conservative capital structures that do not employ aggressive leverage, giving our management teams freedom to operate and creating better alignment.
