Our Corporate Governance

Kinderhook Industries

Founded in 2003, Kinderhook Industries is a private equity firm that manages over $1.25 billion of committed capital. The firm was established to capitalize on the principals’ expertise in acquiring middle-market companies. Kinderhook primarily makes control investments in companies with transaction values of $25-$250 million where the firm can achieve significant financial, operational and growth improvements. The firm targets orphaned non-core subsidiaries of corporate parents, existing small capitalization public companies lacking institutional support and management-led recapitalizations of entrepreneur-owned companies. Kinderhook’s principals have completed in excess of one hundred transactions, investing over $1 billion throughout their investment careers. In addition, Kinderhook is a licensed Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
