Great opportunities begin with great partnerships

Our Approach

We see value where others don't

A business is far more than its financial statements. It is people with families and futures and, so often, untapped potential. As the investment arm of multi-billion dollar global manufacturing and engineering consulting firm Barry-Wehmiller, BW Forsyth Partners blends Barry-Wehmiller’s unparalleled legacy of value creation and people-centric culture development with keen private equity investing experience to help companies realize their true potential.

Since 2009 we have completed 40 acquisitions and currently operate four companies in the capital and component equipment and insurance services sectors. In each business, we deployed operational improvements and strategy development without compromising the autonomy, strategic vision and entrepreneurial spirit of their leadership teams. With every company we acquire, our goal is to buy, build and keep on building, alongside the talented people who make the business possible. Because companies don’t create value; people do.

Patience

We are patient investors who are deeply committed to long-term value creation, the implementation of sustainable business strategies, and continued investment in and development of people and culture.  Our goal is to successfully operate our companies indefinitely.

Balance

Our balance of private equity investing experience and the deep operational expertise and people-centric culture provided by Barry-Wehmiller uniquely positions us to help our companies and team members to thrive.

Partnership

We take an active, hands-on approach to partnering with our companies, acting as a resource to the leadership teams in the development and implementation of their strategies for growth, value creation and the development of a sustainable, people-centric business model.

Flexibility

Our long-term orientation and prudent use of leverage enable us to maintain operational flexibility for our companies throughout the economic cycle. We are free from the traps of short-term decision making and financial engineering to drive returns.

We are trying to put the ‘humanity’ back in investing and prove that we can build companies that sustain decades and represent a source of pride and fulfillment for the people that work in them.

Kyle Chapman, President, Barry-Wehmiller

Our Team

We're passionate about creating lasting positive impact

When you partner with us, you’ll get our investment acumen and Barry-Wehmiller’s deep expertise in building sustainable, people-centric businesses. Plus you’ll feel our trademark culture of caring, collaboration and continuous improvement.

We wanted to transition ownership to someone who would build on the legacy that we’ve created and maintain an unparalleled focus on the Eberl employees along with our adjusters and clients. We are really excited to partner with the Engle Martin and BW Forsyth Partners teams.

Kirk Eberl, Eberl Founder

Our Focus

We target sectors where we know we can add value

Not every deal is the right fit for us. But when we see that our know-how and experience can help companies and their people thrive, we can’t wait to get started.

Within our target industries, we look for partnership opportunities that allow us to leverage the collective resources of our investment professionals, as well as the Barry-Wehmiller team, to create long-term value in our companies. In addition to key, company-specific initiatives, we focus on:

  • Development and implementation of sound business strategies
  • Focus on people-centric leadership initiatives
  • Operational improvements
  • Aggressive yet disciplined acquisition growth.
  • capital-equipment

    Capital Equipment

    Our capital equipment companies, Machine Solutions (MSI) and HawkeyePedershaab (HP) benefit from Barry-Wehmiller’s vast knowledge and experience gained in our parent company’s 130+ year history of designing, manufacturing and delivering highly engineered equipment around the globe. 

    We are always on the lookout for add-on acquisitions for MSI and HP, as well as new platforms, with a specific interest in companies that manufacture:

    • Food Processing Equipment
    • Material Handling & Processing Equipment
    • Machine Tools
  • Component Equipment

    Component Equipment

    Manufactures of highly-engineered components, like our Baldwin Technology company understand the importance of meeting the exacting demands their customers require.  We’re succeeding every day in providing first class products and service to our customers through our focus on listening first and then by doing what we say we’re going to do.

    We continue to seek out add-ons for Baldwin, as well as new platform companies that manufacture highly engineered components for commercial and industrial equipment.

  • Professional Services

    Professional Services

    Engle Martin (EM), our insurance adjusting and claims administration company has more than quadrupled in revenue under the stewardship we have provided in partnership with the leadership team.  We understand the complexities business owners face when choosing their vendors and we aim to provide the same level of service we expect when choosing our service providers.

    As we continue to build EM through add-on acquisitions, we’re also focused on building new professional services platforms, with a specific focus on companies that provide B2B services and possess some of the following characteristics:

    • People-intensive
    • Complex, project-based work
    • National demand with local representation
    • Time and expense revenue model
    • Low-tech / Tech-enabled

Investment Criteria

Financial

  • Revenue: up to $300M
  • EBITDA: up to $25M
  • Enterprise Value: up to $200M
  • No minimums for add-on acquisitions to our existing platforms
  • EBITDA is typically between $1MM - $20MM for add-on acquisitions

Geography

  • North America
  • Western Europe

Transaction Types

  • Family-owned businesses in transition
  • Management buyouts
  • Corporate divestitures / carve-outs
  • Public to Private
  • Distressed or turnaround situations
We are all very excited to be joining Baldwin and the broader BarryWehmiller family and we look forward to the sales enhancement, operational improvement, and cultural development opportunities that this partnership will provide the WPC team.

Herman Gnuechtel, Web Printing Controls (WPC) President

Our Operating Companies

We win only when they win

Our truest measure of success is the fulfillment of the team members inside these businesses.  And that comes from being part of a vibrant business where they feel valued and cared for.  We encourage you to ask them about us - we're proud of what we've accomplished together!

BW Forsyth Partners is showing that a more humanistic and holistic approach can generate returns equal to or even greater than those produced by traditional private equity, without using excessive leverage, market timing, mass layoffs, and other typical financial buyer tactics. It is an approach of building value, not extracting it.

Bob Chapman, Barry-Wehmiller Chairman and CEO

Our Parent Company

Creating value is in our DNA

For more than 30 years, Barry-Wehmiller has tested, refined and improved its successful value creation and culture transformation process on every one of more than 115 businesses they’ve acquired. During that time frame, the company grew from a $20 million business into the diverse $3+ billion global leader it is today. Along the way they figured out the keys to long-term value creation: meaningful work, caring cultures, and the chance to collaborate to achieve something great.

    Over the years, a student’s dependence on online assignment expert has increased manifolds. This is because a student today remains engrossed in various activities. They have to solve assignments, prepare for exams, work part-time, appear for extra classes, attend workshops and internships, etc. As you can imagine, they hardly get the time to focus on their essay writing.

    However, if you wish to select the best essay writing helper, you have to be a bit careful. In order to avoid fraudulent activities, then you need to adhere to certain steps. In this blog, we will take a look at these steps in detail. You should:

    1. Check for the Quality of the Paper

    First, you begin the selection process by taking a look at the standard of the paper. This step is simple. All you have to do is pore through the samples section. You will come across the paper you wish to look at (subject of your choice). Then you go through it thoroughly.

    For instance, you wish to ask for programming assignment help. Then you must check whether the expert chose a good topic or not. Following this, you will take a look at the thesis statement. Then, go through the literature review, methodology, results, and discussion, and have a look at the quality of thesis help.

    Also, make sure that the experts cite the sources well in the text as well as in the reference list. If you find this step to be positive, then only you can proceed to the next step.

    1. Look for Online Testimonials

    Next, you should check for online testimonials provided by students who have already used the service. For this, you can pore through sites like Sitejabber.com, Trustpilot.com, Quora, and much more. You should check whether the experts offered top-notch assignment help 4 me or not, and did they provide the service well within the deadline or not.

    Next, you should check whether the service offered all the features just as they promised or not. If not, then you should steer clear of the service. Finally, make sure that the service offered a refund in the event of any discrepancy.

    1. Check for the Service Rates

    Following this, you should check for the service rates of the educational service provider with which the expert is associated. Why would you pay extra when you can get decent service at the exchange of a few bucks. So, your job would be to compare all the academic service providers that you have gathered so far and compare the pricing. If the amount does not fit your budget, then strike them off.

    In addition to this, you should take a look at the extra features that the academic service provider has to offer. This includes seasonal bonuses, referral bonuses, signup bonuses, bulk order discounts, and much more. Meanwhile, if you are struggling with your assignment and need assignment help, do not hesitate in hiring a professional expert.

    1. Check for Deadline Policy

    Next, you should check for the deadline policy. What’s the point of availing assignment help if you cannot get the task on time? Thus, before you avail the service, go through the deadline policy once. The experts should also be ready to extend their helping hands in the 11th hour. So, you can rely on them in your moments of distress or when you face a time crunch.

    Read More: collaborative partnership of the organizations

    Also, the experts should be available throughout the day. Or, the service should be open 24*7. This will enable you to get support whenever you want. For instance, you are working on your mathematics assignment, and you get stuck in the middle of the night. Whom will you approach then? Here, the academic experts come in handy.

    1. Check for Features like Proofreading and Plagiarism Checking

    Every academic service provider should offer proofreading and plagiarism checking features. If not, then it is wise if you take a look at other services. When you submit a dissertation, thesis, case study, or essay, it is essential that you present a 100% error-free assignment. The experts should pore through the paper and get rid of grammatical, spelling, citation, formatting, and factual error.
