Over three decades ago, we embarked on a journey to create a great company―one that is a thought leader, innovator and problem solver in helping industrial companies enhance equipment reliability and increase profitability. We have been successful in realizing this vision, and your loyalty and support of Des-Case has helped to make this success possible.
As you may know, Des-Case has enjoyed the benefits of being invested in by private equity since 2013. Private equity ownership provides organizations like Des-Case with the additional resources needed to further expand geographic reach, advance in new product development, and make the overall investments needed to continue significant growth trends.
Yesterday, we embarked on the next phase of our journey with Industrial Growth Partners (IGP). IGP is a specialist private investment partnership with $2.2 billion in capital raised since inception that provides equity capital to industrial manufacturing companies. With a 20 year history in the industrial sector, IGP provides significant strategic and operational support to its portfolio companies and has extensive experience building global manufacturing businesses. Des-Case will continue to be afforded the financing needed to grow and provide the exceptional products and services you have come to expect from our company.
Our continued independence will allow us to preserve our strategy, mission, vision, values, and further perform on our commitment of providing innovative, industry-leading products and services to you and the entire lubricant contamination control industry. This decision was made to help accelerate growth, and was made possible by the great story we’ve all built together. In the long run, we know partnering with IGP will help us take the next steps needed as we all continue to build on our past successes. There may be several questions that come to mind, and we will do our best to answer all of them. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected]. In short, we expect very little to change.
We thank you for your support and enthusiasm during these exciting times. To learn more about the IGP and Des-Case partnership, please click here.
