Founded in 1903, HKW has evolved from a merchant/investment bank to a leader in the private equity industry.
Today, HKW continues to seek investments in companies with solid fundamentals, providing financial transaction expertise and empowering management.
The firm has successfully sponsored management buy-outs of companies in a variety of industries, including, more recently: medical devices, specialty vehicles, aerospace, defense, utility related infrastructure, energy, oil/gas, nuclear, coal, and niche manufacturing, among others. In addition to providing capital, HKW has continued to increase its service and support offerings.
The history of Hammond, Kennedy, Whitney & Company, Inc. is rich and full. It’s a story of success and expertise—the anchors that keep the firm well grounded. But it is a story that has only just begun. As it casts off into the future, HKW is well positioned to continue to serve as an experienced, supportive, and sophisticated partner, working together with management to build world class companies.
