Investing and growing for over 100 years

Brookside Private Equity (Brookside), based in West Warwick Rhode Island, is a privately held investment firm focused on acquiring or making significant investments in middle market operating companies focused primarily in the New England market. While we prefer working with companies in New England, we have and will continue to invest outside of this area if the investment meets certain criteria. The firm is the small business and private investment arm of the Natco Group of Companies and their principals. The group has been successfully acquiring, investing and growing small to medium sized businesses for over 100 years. The Natco Group of Companies has been in operations since 1917 with four generations of active family management.

The Natco Group of companies, including Natco Home, mainly focuses in Consumer Goods, Home Textile, Manufacturing, Health and Hospitality, Real Estate, Business Services and Supply Chain/Distribution industries. The range of typical investments for the portfolio are businesses with existing sales of $2,000,000 to $60,000,000 million with total transactional values up to $25,000,000. Occasionally we will consider small “angel” investor investments but we are highly selective. On occasion, we will consider larger investments as well.

Brookside has been built on conservative principles and a culture of integrity, core focus on long-term relationships with our acquired companies, transparent and open communications and respect and trust. We prefer to engage in business relationships with partners, associates and clients who share these core values and principles and accordingly enjoy many long standing relationships built on common goals, hard work, and mutual trust and respect.
