About Us



   AP Capital Investments is a Buy-and-Build private equity investment and strategic advisory firm founded in 2007.  We are focused on performance improvement and industry consolidation in the middle market. We operate in the US and in Europe with an interest in the Middle East and other Emerging Markets. Our access to capital, industry experts and management talent through our broad network in the United States, Europe, the Middle East and other emerging markets allows us to provide a unique level of added value to our investments. 

Our approach is to research and identify attractive market segments where we can facilitate consolidation and where we can become a value-added business partner to the acquired companies.  We understand the importance of consulting extensively with senior managers, operations executives, sales and marketing teams, as well as customers, suppliers and other industry experts to fully understand the opportunities and risks of the businesses we enter.

We help improve the growth profile and profitability of acquired businesses through our Full Potential Approach. Our program includes the implementation of the right strategy, strong emphasis on execution in operational excellence, organizational alignment and the right financing.  It may be complemented with select follow on acquisitions to strengthen the customer base or the offering.
