PolyTor is a focused global private Investment Firm and Holding Company. Established in 2011, PolyTor specializes in recognizing value – or the potential for value – where others do not. Our contrarian philosophy, global reach, and deep investment and operational expertise set PolyTor apart from other firms. Our complementary asset classes offer a unique investment platform.

Our Platform

PolyTor utilizes a financial and operational “Combi-Mization”™ approach to the structure, our decades of high-performance experience dictate that neither a pure Private Equity numbers approach or a Organic Operational approach yield the best overall results.

A finely tuned combination is required, with a resources from Finance and Operations teamed to be strategic and tactical, then and only then do you get stellar growth and quarter over quarter performance.

This method removes operational risk, which removes financial risk. At PolyTor we have a Zero Tolerance Policy toward Operational risks. We will always lead with the biggest brand, the best technology, the best manufacturing, the best growing markets. This manages the risk profile to execution risk only, this allows our company’s management teams to focus on their mission instead of shadows of risk, that should never exist.

Our approach to Consumer & Business Technologies highlights the “Combi-Mization” efficiency very easily , as shown in the following diagram:



We are problem solvers, partners and pioneers

PolyTor’s approach to investing helps us recognize value – or the potential for value – where others cannot see it. This contrarian philosophy has delivered consistent and outstanding performance because we dedicate the right mix of capital, time, and management, and operational expertise, to make successful investments out of challenging situations.

Some of PolyTor’s most noteworthy accomplishments have been in situations involving complicated structures, cyclical and regulatory risk, and distressed and turnaround situations. We maintain a mid to long-term perspective on investments to help companies grow to meet their full potential.

From steady-state buyouts to turnarounds to “off the beaten path” opportunities, we bring deep investment skills, experience, operational and management expertise

Our experiences span a range of industries including technology, data storage, consumer products, manufacturing, and retailing.

Across these industries we have developed a broad set of capabilities that supports multiple investment strategies. Our investment criteria looks at three major transaction types:

  • Traditional steady buyouts: we support growth in firms with leading brands, high market shares and strong management teams.
  • Turnarounds: we transform firms through heavy involvement from our deal professionals and operational experts.
  • “Off the beaten path” minority investments and partnerships: we use our sector experience and industry relationships to create unique, proprietary opportunities.

PolyTor’s differentiated approach has led to distinctive specialized industry knowledge and deep relationships spanning many industries, allowing us to identify and approach companies that might not otherwise be available for investment.

A key element of PolyTor’s success is the ability to add operating value at each of our diverse portfolio companies. We devote significant resources to this capability, attracting experienced, full-time operating professionals, a network of world-class executives, and affiliated senior advisors dedicated to enhancing the operations of portfolio companies and cultivating effective management teams.

This operational and management expertise enables PolyTor to pursue turnaround opportunities that others are often unwilling to consider. We have an extensive track record of undertaking investments involving distressed financial situations and management turnarounds.
