Tech-Driven Manufacturing

Technology-driven manufacturing companies targeted by Milestone produce highly engineered products, components, equipment and/or systems. Ideally, these products are proprietary or are produced using proprietary technologies. We believe these characteristics can lead to above average growth and margin profiles. We draw from decades of manufacturing investing experience to support our portfolio companies with various value enhancement and growth acceleration initiatives, including add-on acquisitions, investments in technology and R&D, thoughtful capital spending, operational excellence programs, expanding engineering and manufacturing capabilities and general organizational development.
