WhO We Are

About TRM

TRM Equity is a private equity firm that seeks to invest in situations where the experience of our team can assist companies in executing their strategies. The Firm's core team has worked and invested together for over 15 years, applying a consistent approach in targeted manufacturing industries, and has a demonstrated track record of outsized returns.

TRM Equity makes control investments in middle-market businesses with a history of profitability that are currently undergoing financial or operational stress. These companies possess some form of balance sheet, legal, environmental, labor, or transactional complexity and are underperforming their potential. We take an operationally intensive approach and transform these businesses into well run, best-in-class organizations.

We have extensive financial, operating, and transactional experience. All our senior investment team members have operating experience both in roles at our portfolio companies or in their prior experience to expedite the transformation of the acquired businesses.

TRM Equity focuses on creative transaction structures and is comfortable investing in carve-outs of large multinational businesses, industry consolidations, family-owned businesses, bankruptcies / work-outs, and other special situations. Target investments typically have revenues up to US$300 million, though we can go outside this range on a case-by-case basis. The businesses are generally headquartered in North America or Europe but can have operations anywhere in the world.
