Real Operating experience

We are experienced operators, not career financial professionals. Our operating experience doesn't come from the board room - it comes from the plant floor. Our Principals and Advisors have decades of executive level experience in leading, growing, acquiring and building industrial business.

Some call them "old economy". Some call them B2B. We call them backbone companies. Manufacturing, Production, Distribution, Industrial Services, Engineering, Construction, Logistics. The type of businesses that make our economy strong. Our focus areas include a wide range of industrial oriented products and services operations.

Long term


Our focus is on the long term, not next quarter or next year. We are business builders who value a long term perspective and the skill and talent to dream and achieve big things. We focus on the possible and then provide companies with the capital, the resources and tools needed to achieve.


 We are Operators, not Financial Engineers 

Investment Capital for Industrial Businesses

Clavis Capital Partners makes control investments in strategically viable but capitally constrained industrial oriented companies (manufacturing and select industrial services) striving to reach their full potential. Clavis Capital's  professionals are operators, not financial engineers. Our Principals and Advisors are experienced operators and investors that have managed businesses ranging from $10 million to $700 million in revenue across a variety of different sectors. We bring experience. We bring connections. We bring resources. We bring our hard hat.

We focus on real businesses with growth potential. Our firm works collaboratively with existing strong management teams; providing not only capital but experience, resources, and connections to grow. We leverage a proven value creation and leadership process to facilitate operational improvements leading to significant growth and cash generation. We operate under a win-win philosophy where all stakeholders - investors, management, employees and customers - benefit from our collective efforts. 

We are Clavis. 

Our Name - What's a "Clavis"?

Clavis, Latin for the word "Key", has significant meaning to us - and a story behind it. The word and the story represent optimism, finding solutions in places that you don't expect and looking under the surface for answers. Keys open doors where you want to or need to go.

Give us a call if you'd like to hear the story. We'd be happy to buy you a cup of coffee and tell you more about Clavis.
