Private Equity Fund

Tecum Equity

About Our Private Equity Fund

Tecum Equity is a family office backed by committed capital that was formed to build a portfolio of lower middle-market businesses primarily in the capital equipment with P&M, food and beverage, high-value manufacturing, industrial services, and value-added distribution sectors. We seek control equity positions in businesses with $2 million to $20 million of EBITDA. As a family office, Tecum Equity has a long term investment horizon and takes a patient approach to build equity value in the businesses we acquire.

The capital committed to our family office is supplied by a local entrepreneur that built and successfully grew his industrial business through 40 years of “old-fashioned” American work ethic and ingenuity. He now employs over 1000 people and has grown his business to become one of the largest privately held companies in Western Pennsylvania. His core philosophy is to invest in great people, a philosophy that Tecum has adopted when partnering with management teams and business owners. The goal of our family office fund is to build more than a portfolio of businesses, it is to build a legacy for our investor. As such, we seek business owners that value seeing their own legacy survive well after they exit their business.

We seek to function as a value-added resource and work collaboratively with our portfolio companies. Tecum and its network provide oversight in the areas of strategic planning, business and financial management, operational improvements, technology, and add-on acquisitions. As a result of the flexible structure within our investment platform, we are able to support and execute long-term growth strategies, while patiently resolving business hurdles without the timing pressure and restrictions of a limited-term fund.
