    Capital Partners is a private equity investment firm, founded in 1982, that invests in and develops mid-sized, private, North American-based companies with EBITDA of $4 to $25 million. Since its inception, the firm has invested in more than 60 companies, with an average investment term greater than six years. Capital Partners invests in and partners with highly committed management teams of successful, profitable companies in a broad spectrum of industries, including: food processing, consumer products, basic manufacturing, value-added distribution, out-sourced business services, healthcare services, for-profit education, crafts and hobbies, water infrastructure, and a number of other niche product and service areas. The firm targets private companies with revenues between $20 million and $150 million. Typically, Capital Partners will purchase a majority interest with management and, if desired, with other sellers maintaining a position. In 2008, the firm raised its third committed private equity fund, Capital Partners Private Equity Income Fund LP.
