“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.”
“Rather than constantly looking for ways to cut back, HBM has always looked for ways to help move the company forward. The relationship is collaborative, supportive and ‘hands-off’, giving the management team wide latitude to make quick operational and capital decisions.”
President and CEO, Delavau
“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.”
President and COO, Mississippi Lime
“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.”
“Since HBM acquired the company, Delavau has been able to expand our product offerings, improve quality and, because of that, we have won significant new business. HBM has strengthened us by the addition of key outside hires, and significant capital spending has propelled the company to an industry leading position of strength.”
President and CEO, Delavau
“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.”
