O’Brien Capital LLC was formed after Bob O’Brien sold a Saint Louis based manufacturing company to a private equity firm. O’Brien Capital was established to acquire low middle market manufacturing or service organization that can be developed with additional investment and operational expertise. Additionally, O’Brien Capital has decades of operational and management experience in the manufacturing industry and can offer a management team the necessary support suitable for growth, expansion or turnaround.
O’Brien Capital is interested in long-term majority investments in privately held firms in the lower middle market that are in need of board-level guidance and possess exploitable opportunities for growth. We prefer to take a board-level advisory approach with an existing management team but our experience includes management transitions to achieve growth or accommodate an owner/manager who wishes to exit the firm.
