BLACKFORD CAPITAL is a private investment firm that acquires, manages, and grows middle-market manufacturing, distribution, and service companies. We believe that the best opportunities to create significant value are found in companies in need of new capital, new ownership structures, and additional infrastructure to support growth. Our goal is to provide attractive exit options for owners and operators of small to medium-sized privately held enterprises and to provide divestiture opportunities for divisions of corporate parent companies that no longer reflect the company's strategic focus.

We are long-term investors who believe that business success is based on character, discipline, and experience. We care about the customers, the employees, and the communities of the firms we acquire, and we work hard to protect their interests throughout the acquisition process and while under our stewardship. We believe these qualities make Blackford Capital an attractive partner to maximize the value of your business and continue its legacy.

Headquartered in Michigan and having a great affection for the state, Blackford recently launched its Michigan Prosperity Fund, a fund focused exclusively on Michigan-based businesses. The primary objective of the fund is to generate best in class equity returns for its investors along with the additional goal to support the Michigan economy by protecting and creating jobs within the state and reducing the export of Michigan capital to out-of-state private equity funds acquiring Michigan businesses.
