Kanbrick, a Long-Term Partner for Midsize Companies, Announces $220 Million Capital Raise

Kanbrick, a long-term investment partnership focused on family and founder owned companies, announced it has raised $220 million in capital. With this raise, Kanbrick is excited to have a leading group of long-term investors and business leaders as partners.

Kanbrick makes majority and minority investments in consumer, industrial, and business services companies that have $5-$50 million in EBIT. Kanbrick focuses on partnering with the owners of closely held businesses to protect and enrich their legacy, accelerate growth, and diversify their wealth. Kanbrick takes a long-term approach and helps support these businesses with the implementation of the Kanbrick Business System, an integrated way to add value in midsize companies focused on people, operating systems, and growth.

"We've found that many family and founder owned businesses are looking for an alternative to traditional private equity," said Kanbrick Co-Founder Tracy Britt Cool. "They want a long-term partner who specializes in navigating the unique opportunities and challenges they face. We are focused on connecting people, purpose, and performance through the Kanbrick Business System to drive lasting value."

Kanbrick has two platform partnerships to date: JM Test Systems, a third-generation calibration services company founded by the Morrison family, and Marine Concepts, a boating enthusiast brand whose founder Randy Kent invented a product that quickly covers boats, as well as a minority investment in Thirty-One Gifts.

"Having grown up in family businesses, we built Kanbrick to be the option we wanted for our families. We are grateful for the trust our partners have placed in us, and our team is excited to continue our mission of building exceptional, enduring companies," added Kanbrick Co-Founder Brian Humphrey.

Kanbrick also supports midsize companies across America through the Kanbrick Community, an invitation-only group of owners and executives of midsize companies, dedicated to continuous learning, growth, and improvement. Offerings include:
