Eli Global companies function independently. This approach allows the business to focus on the customer, not on HQ. It allows the leaders who know their markets best to build customer-focused operations. Our Buy and Hold philosophy means we are in it for the long haul. Unlike the typical Private Equity firm, we do not flip and sell. When we buy a business, we build a plan for the next 40 years. Our long-term focus and private ownership gives us the ability to develop relationships and invest in new markets and businesses over a period of many years.
In 1997, Eli Global had 10 employees in one, small office in Durham, North Carolina, USA. Still headquartered in Durham, today the company’s separate business units stretch across more than 15 different market sectors and employ 4,000 people operating from more than 20 locations globally.
We love the entrepreneurial owners and are passionate about partnering with these owners to support their vision for the business. We remain committed to expanding the diversity of our portfolio to include value added products and services, where we know we can assist quality businesses to develop.
