The Heartland Industrial Group was established to acquire and expand industrial companies in sectors ripe for consolidation and growth. Heartland builds value by investing in well-positioned industrial companies, whose talent, technology, assets and market position afford them the opportunity to be a platform for industry consolidation and value-creation.Known as an industrial platform scale up, this differentiated investment model targets sectors such as aerospace components and materials, automotive suppliers, capital goods, chemicals, plastics conversion, metal working and other sectors of the US manufacturing economy where conditions are conducive to buildup strategies.Heartland conducts front-end, in-house and consultant-supported research using customized methods. Platforms are launched only where research reveals unique value generating strategies that can result in the operational scale, business focus and competitive advantage.The firm has a recruiting program designed to outfit each portfolio platform company with a high-powered and heavily incentivized world-class CEO and top management team. To enhance the attractiveness of the CEO position at their platform companies, Heartland makes each CEO an outside partner of the firm, with a large stake in his platform, as well as allows participation in Heartland's overall profits.Platform companies seek to generate value not simply through add-on acquisitions, but via an extensive tool kit of measures designed to create efficiency and bring more value to customers. These include consolidating acquisitions, major CAPEX projects, product innovation, process and technology upgrades, product line expansion and globalization and other strategic initiatives.Heartland's front-end emphasis on selection of only very high potential buildup platforms will be supplemented by a commensurate focus on positioning, seasoning and staging its platforms for optimal growth. Heartland prepares each platform to achieve the highest level of valuation possible.
