If you're a driven visionary who wants to continue innovating, every single day then you've come to the right place.
And this type of drive to innovate shouldn't stop once acquired. Our buy-and-hold strategy means that we won’t sell our companies, preferring instead to grow and develop them for life. We have a full circle approach to M&A so once your leader or team of leaders has settled in, you remain empowered to accelerate product innovation and scale products globally, allowing you to expand into new markets and geographies.
To us, always doing the right thing consists of being open, honest, and cultivating a culture of accountability and respect. Integrity means committing to our word to better serve our customers and our teams.
We make sure our acquisition processes follow the same values. Upfront and transparent with our acquisition process, we have a detailed process that we follow closely. We are open to working with business owners throughout each step of the process to ensure your voice is heard and important details are not overlooked.
As Mark Miller, the founder of Trapeze Group, likes to say – everything starts with our customers, and we work back from that. We’re looking for companies that share these customer-centric values and together, we’ll ensure that your customers continue to have access to leading solutions that improve their lives.
How? One way is by continuing to build relationships and accelerate organic growth through product innovation, geographic expansion, or both.
Business decisions that drive to success must be framed with accountability and fiscal responsibility.
We look to the management team of our acquired companies to operate autonomously and empower them to make decisions at the local level. Their ideas and initiatives in growing product offerings or serving new markets are important to the growth of Trapeze in the long-term.
