Wencor Group, LLC

  • Overview

The partners of Odyssey Investment are on a quest for companies primed for growth. The firm manages about $4 billion in capital via three equity funds that invest mainly 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.

Geographic Reach

Odyssey Investment Partners has offices in New York and Los Angeles.

Sales and Marketing

The investment firm focuses on several sectors, such as 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.

Strategy

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.

In 2013 the investment firm acquired Georgia-based Fischbein LLC, a top supplier of packaging machinery and material handling equipment; and Colorado-based Cross-Country Pipeline Supply, a supplier of equipment and supplies to the pipeline construction industry.

Company Background

Odyssey Investment Partners was co-founded in 1993 by chairman Stephen Berger and co-presidents and managing principals Brian Kwait and William Hopkins.
