“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 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.”

Bill Ayers

President and CEO, Mississippi Lime

“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

Former 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.”
