JW Hill Capital

JW Hill Capital, a Newport Beach California-based private equity firm, leverages its industry expertise and operating experience to acquire and grow small- to lower-middle market companies.  We are experienced operators, with an extensive network of industry experts and accomplished professionals across many disciplines.  Our focus is on long-term value creation and sustainable earnings growth, not just the transaction.

We seek partners who share our core values of integrity and respect, and whose trust we can earn over time.  We partner with business owners to accomplish a successful ownership transition and provide liquidity.   We partner with management teams to create a healthy culture, attract top talent, and build great businesses.  And we work hard to manage risk and deliver attractive returns for our financial partners.

Our primary focus is manufacturing, value-add distribution, and industrial services.   We seek businesses that possess strong fundamentals, differentiating and sustainable attributes, and deep customer relationships.  Our selection is based on our ability to improve the robustness of the business with a strategy that creates value through organic growth, operational improvements, and add-on acquisitions where appropriate.  We also target under-performing special situations where our operating expertise is relevant.
