The Dorman Group of Companies is a Family Investment Office with ownership and direct investments in quality growth-oriented businesses led by talented management teams. For the past twenty-five years, our core activity has been the acquisition of operating companies in various industries generating a minimum of $3 million of EBITDA. This activity has resulted in the full or partial buyout of owners often time with re-investment or partnership with selling shareholders that wish to remain to continue the growth of the respective business.
Our active approach in working with day to day management teams with aligned interests allows us to focus on the long-term growth and development of the enterprise. Our support consists of financial resources, development of the long-term strategic business plan, corporate development activities including acquisitions, and establishment and oversight of key operating metrics.
We are focused on the long-term success of our companies with two generations of family members actively involved in the business. We enjoy working with like-minded partners and building companies to their full potential while remaining positive stewards of the businesses in conjunction with our management teams.
Our initiation of business activities is carried out through our Merchant Banking firm, D. J. Dorman & Co., Inc. ("DJD"). DJD has been well known in the industry for over thirty years and serves as our entity which identifies, structures, finances, and manages most of our activities. Other investment vehicles and partnerships are used on a case by case basis or an industry specific need.
