2022 – An Exceptional Year for Shorehill Capital

2022 was an outstanding year for Shorehill Capital and our portfolio companies. We added world-class talent, and we completed noteworthy platform investments, add-on acquisitions, and exits. In addition, both Shorehill and our portfolio companies continued to be recognized as leading institutions. We are excited to highlight some of these developments and accomplishments. While we enter 2023 with some economic uncertainty, we firmly believe our portfolio and the Shorehill investment strategy are well-positioned to thrive.


Adding World-Class Talent


2022 was an active year for human capital additions at both Shorehill and our portfolio companies. We recruited or promoted smart, collaborative, driven executives into critical positions.



Noteworthy Transactions


2022 was a highly productive year for Shorehill and our portfolio companies.



In addition to the above transactions closed in 2022, at year end Shorehill portfolio companies had agreed to terms with three additional strategic add-on acquisitions that are all expected to close in the first quarter of 2023. Prudent use of leverage across our portfolio has served us well in this environment and has allowed us to continue to invest in our businesses’ pursuit of both organic and acquisition-related growth initiatives.




Shorehill and our portfolio companies were also recognized in 2022 for their unique cultures and differentiated business models.



The Shorehill team is eager to continue the momentum, and we believe we are a preeminent buyer of industrial businesses in the lower middle market:


Focus We are a Chicago-based private equity firm with a passion for building superior companies. We are focused on making equity investments in North American engineered industrial products, industrial services, and value-added distribution companies with EBITDA between $3 million and $15 million and add-ons of any size.

Experience For nearly 30 years Shorehill’s partners have worked with middle market business leaders to accelerate growth and improve operational performance through structured investment management plans. We seek opportunities with differentiated business models where the team’s experience, network and investment management approach can have a significant impact on the performance of the business. Our substantial experience is complemented by our Executive Advisor Network, a group of 70 thought leaders within our target sectors who support our investment efforts through investment referrals, diligence insights, and critical roles on portfolio company boards of directors.

Trust We are a management-friendly buyer, as evidenced by our repeated presence on Inc.’s list of top private equity firms for entrepreneurs. The partnerships we create with owners and management teams are further evidence of this trust. Over 130 executives have become equity partners with Shorehill across the seven businesses in which we have invested. Regardless of whether we acquire businesses from private owners or institutional owners, Shorehill can be counted on to be a good steward of the founders’ and prior owners’ legacies.


We remain confident in our investment strategy and we expect to be active investors in this uncertain market. We invite you to visit our website to learn more about Shorehill ( Please reach out to our Business Development team (Rob Hogan and Thomas Sigle) related to new investment opportunities.
