Our Company

Jordan Industries International, LLC (“JII”), headquartered in Chicago, is a diversified private investment company that acquires businesses to foster their growth and create long-term value. Founded in 1988, JII has acquired more than 100 companies and established a track record of teaming up with growth-oriented entrepreneurs to build industry leading companies.

Investment Philosophy

JII offers a family like culture which will not pose a risk to a company's legacy, entrepreneurial spirit, operations or management. JII is built on the belief that the best way to create future value is to support the efforts of management with market-driven strategies, engaging culture and a common vision.

True Partnership

A transaction with JII can offer both the opportunity for owners to realize personal financial liquidity as well as the ability to participate in the continued success of the business and future value creation. JII’s philosophy is to create significant equity opportunities for key management, truly viewing them as partners rather than employees.

Local leadership, local relationships, local resources

As part of JII, companies draw upon the resources of a larger entity yet continue to be operated autonomously by their own management teams. The best of all worlds. JII is a firm believer in the strength of local leadership, local relationships and local resources.

Long-term growth potential

Whether it be geographic expansion, access to new end markets, strategic acquisitions, or investment in product development, personnel and/or infrastructure, JII will provide the necessary capital to ensure long-term growth.

Through this growth, jobs are created in communities in which JII operations are located and exciting opportunities open up for employees.

Investment Strategy

Since JII is a private investment company and not a traditional private equity fund, our growth plans are closely aligned with management to focus on long-term growth, not short-term gain.

Permanent Capital

JII makes its investments from a permanent capital base and does not subject companies to predetermined hold periods, return requirements or other common limitations typical of private equity firms.

Flexible Structuring

JII recognizes that every transaction is unique and understands the importance of flexibility when structuring each transaction.

Investment Experience

JII has closed more than 100 investments since 1988 in a multitude of industries and markets.

Long-Term Growth

JII has a history of investing with management to build value over time through both organic growth initiatives and strategic acquisitions.

Management Centric

Management is central to JII’s investment strategy and a critical factor in determining future success.

Entrepreneurial Independence

The advantages of consolidation do not interfere with the independent operations of each JII company.
