Who we are

Founded in 1998, PCM Companies is a Minneapolis based private investment firm focused on investing in businesses that make up the backbone of our economy. We are not a private equity fund; we are patient investors focused on partnering with founders and management teams to continue building and growing exceptional businesses. Our flexible investment horizons are determined by the underlying businesses we partner with, not the lifecycle of an investment fund. This aligns interests across key stakeholders and reduces conflicts.

We believe ownership transitions should simultaneously meet the objectives of current owners while enabling the future operators (management and employees) to be successful in the long-run.
