“When we decided to sell the company, we wanted a partner that would allow us to focus on building the business for the long-term, and HBM fit the bill perfectly. We now not only develop annual budgets, but also five year strategic plans.  The focus of these plans is not only on profits, but also on growth-oriented capital investments and developing new customers.”

Gregg Notestine

President & CEO, Tru-Flex

“HBM has really helped us get involved with developing our employees. Because of their help, each of our employees now has a development plan to improve their job performance. This provides us with better employees and gives the employee greater job satisfaction and security – a win for us and the employees.”

“HBM provides resources for merger and acquisition activities and specific project work where we don’t have resources. We have an excellent relationship with HBM. They are like our team members in many ways and we all work together.”

“As a small, fast growing company, we needed to implement more structure into our processes. HBM’s experienced management team helped us implement structured processes that help us push decision-making down, while still retaining a handle on the direction of the business.”

President, Tru-Flex

“We meet with HBM monthly to review the prior month’s financial results. The focus of the meeting is less about the financial results, and more about how we can collectively continue to grow the business. The collaborative nature of the meeting creates an environment that allows us to really solve problems.”

Gregg Notestine

President & CEO, Tru-Flex

“From our earliest conversations, HBM sought to understand our business, the value we bring to customers, and our emphasis on creating a positive work environment for our employees. We are thrilled to have found a partner-and neighbor in the St. Louis area-that shares our focus on lean manufacturing excellence and will support our next chapter of growth.”

Bob Dunaway

Chairman and CEO of Aerofil Technology, Inc.

“As we engaged in the process of selling Schafer, our priorities were our employees and our customers. Throughout the process, HBM Holdings stood out not just in value for us as shareholders, but in terms of cultural fit. They understand our markets, technology and resource constraints and have a talent development strategy that will help our people continue to grow and succeed. Their focus on growth will benefit both our employees and our customers.”
