Distinctive Operating Orientation
Blackland Group is a cashflow-oriented private equity investor based in Dallas - the heart of the Texas Blackland Prairie. The Group focuses on high quality, defensible businesses as evidenced by:
- Historical stability and profitability
- Customer contracts/backlog
- Reputation/relationships with customers
Focus on Building Value
Blackland invests across industries, but given the firm's specific expertise, has a particular affinity for manufacturing companies, generally, and companies focused on Aerospace and Defense, specifically. The firm was founded by experienced operating executives with significant history of working with both the Fortune 500 and the Department of Defense. It looks for situations in which it can dramatically improve performance through the implementation of Lean Six Sigma practices to reduce cycle time and leverage the contacts of its principals, particularly within the aerospace/defense industry, to help grow portfolio companies.
