The partners of Odyssey Investment are on a quest for companies
primed for growth. The firm manages about $4 billion in

established middle-market companies. An active investor that
acquires majority stakes in firms and partners with their
management, Odyssey Investment Partners seeks out sectors or
markets that could benefit from regulatory or economic
changes. It focuses on the industrial manufacturing,
business and financial services, aerospace and defense, energy,
equipment rental, and logistics industries. The firm's
portfolio of some 15 companies includes Cross-Country Pipeline
Supply, Peninsula Packaging Co., and Safway Group Holdings.

industrial manufacturing, business and insurance services,
aerospace and defense products and services, route-based
businesses, energy products and services, supply chain management,
and rental businesses.
Odyssey Investment Partners typically invests in companies with
EBITDA that ranges from $20 million to $100 million.
The firm's investment strategy is focused on established
middle-market companies. It also seeks to invest in markets that
can benefit from economic changes, industry trends, regulatory
changes, or market dislocations. Odyssey works closely with its
portfolio companies to drive growth, boost revenues, and
increase profits. The main goal is to transform middle-market
companies into larger entities with bigger market share.
