Guardian Capital Partners is a private equity firm based in suburban Philadelphia that makes control investments in lower middle market manufacturing and service companies. We partner with management teams and provide business and liquidity solutions to sellers of family-owned businesses or non-core divisions of larger corporations.

Our team has a comprehensive background in operations, finance and leveraged buyouts, and as such provides an experienced and disciplined approach to executing transactions and building long-term value for our portfolio companies. Whether business owners are looking to monetize their ownership stakes, a management team is seeking a partner to facilitate a management buyout, or a corporate parent is planning to sell a non-core asset, Guardian Capital Partners brings speed, certainty and a solution-oriented structure to meet the seller's needs.

We partner and develop meaningful relationships with management teams, and leverage our experience and extensive network of operational and financial relationships to strengthen and grow our portfolio companies. We target companies with revenues between $20 million and $100 million, and have the flexibility to pursue larger transactions through co-investor relationships.
