The foundational pillars of the Lionheart Edge Operating SystemLM ensure focus on customers and markets, improve performance, and empower our teams.


At Lionheart Industrial Group, our goal is not a predetermined rate of return with a quick exit. Instead, we seek to build long-term value within our platform companies by listening to customers and driving the new. Our guidance, leadership and business operating systems allow our companies to yield a consistent and higher rate of return on invested capital (ROIC). Pursuing growth, the following are unique capabilities that Lionheart Industrial Group applies to its businesses:
    ➣ Customer centric: Voice of the customer
    ➣ N2OLM: New New to OverDrive
    ➣ Leveraging Differential Advantage
    ➣ Defined GoTo Market Strategy
What sets Lionheart Industrial Group apart from typical private firms is the fact that we actively work with our companies to optimize growth organically as well as through strategic acquisitions. We achieve this by helping to drive new markets and under-served segments, new customers and new products and services. We call this N2OLM "New New to OverDrive". Seeking to exceed industry growth rates, the best way is to continually be on the frontier of "the new" and deliver customers the best value proposition.


We recognize that in many smaller middle-market companies, the owners wear several hats to help their companies thrive. Lionheart brings strategic planning and operational experience while working with the owners through a transition period to ensure a smooth transition in all aspects of the business. At Lionheart, we focus on implementing continuous improvement through PRO Teams, streamlining costs, robust supply chain management and providing leadership with strategic business plan development and execution. In our relentless pursuit of perfection, Lionheart utilizes a core set of critical skills that we bring to an organization to improve its operating performance:
    ➣ Quality first
    ➣ Safety programs and processes
    ➣ PRO Teams: Process Review and Optimization
    ➣ Supply chain and logistics
    ➣ Data-driven decisions enabled by real-time IT systems

While Lionheart Industrial Group prefers to focus acquisitions of companies that have a proven management team, we can also work with sellers to effect an exit strategy and leadership transition for a business owner. This is because we believe in empowering the talents of our employees and assisting them in unlocking their potential to grow both their careers as well as the company. To complement these organic initiatives, we also look for complementary acquisitions and strategic alliances to expand the scope and range of capabilities our organizations can deliver to customers. These are some of the values we seek and reinforce in our management teams:
    ➣ Acquisition and Retention of High Quality Long-Term Talent
    ➣ Talent Development Through Continuous Learning
    ➣ Responsibility and Accountability
    ➣ Open and Honest Communication
