Technology is paving the way for today’s niche manufacturing.

Quality, speed, transportation savings – plus, the ability to compete on wages with workers in other countries -- is luring manufacturers back to the U.S. and, despite some skepticism, bringing nice profit margins with them.

A recent report on 60 Minutes showed the cost of using today’s factory robots to perform simple tasks is only $3.40 an hour, making it economical to do the work here. Plus, this rise in automation is boosting our job market, as well.

Unique manufacturing businesses can generate attractive returns for middle-market investors who are ready to perform the necessary due diligence. Just consider:

  • Domestic industrial output has been marching upwards every year since 2009.
  • Valuations for manufacturing companies are up over 2012, in some cases 10% 20% higher in terms of multiples.
  • A recent MIT survey found that 14% of U.S. companies are actively moving manufacturing back to the domestic market.

Yet because the metrics are different in 2013, investors need to assess opportunities in a whole new light. For example, while the election uncertainty is gone, the specter of higher healthcare costs makes it critical to closely watch margins. And with current EPA administrators secure for another four years, it’s crucial to plan for possible changes.

You’ll gain the knowledge to achieve success when you attend The Capital Roundtable’s ENCORE conference — “Private Equity Investing in Middle-Market Manufacturing Companies,” being held in New York City on Thursday, February 28.

Here are just 6 important reasons you should attend this conference:

  1. Hear why the United States is the best place in the world today for investing in manufacturing assets – period.
  2. Discover which manufacturing sectors are likely to benefit most from 2013 market conditions.
  3. Find out how changes are affecting PE deal structures in the manufacturing marketplace.
  4. Learn which rules and regulations being discussed in Congress and the White House may affect the sector.
  5. Recognize why this is such a good time to be a borrower for middle-market manufacturing deals.
  6. Understand the challenges in finding and hiring the strongest manufacturing talent.

Serving as chair of this ENCORE conference on Thursday, February 28, in New York, is Russell J. Greenberg, Managing Partner of Connecticut-headquartered middle-market firm Altus Capital Partners Inc.  Altus invests in U.S. domiciled middle market manufacturing companies that employ proprietary technologies to produce highly engineered products for both domestic and international markets.

Russ has over 25 years of experience in private equity and buyout investing. He co-founded Altus Capital Partners in 2003 to continue the successful investment strategy of his previous fund, Max Capital Partners. Currently, Russ serves as chairman of the Board of Directors of Thomson Plastics and Aqua-Chem, and serves on the board of International Imaging Materials, Inc., Thermafiber, Inc., and Gulfco Holding Corp.

Through more than 100 buyouts corporate finance and merger transactions, with an aggregate value of more than $6 billion, Russ brings a broad perspective on successful private equity investing in both strong and weak economic periods. He believes in combining capital with talented management to develop companies and build shareholder value.

Before forming the Altus Capital and Max Capital funds, Russ held executive positions at investment banks, including Brean Murray Securities, Daiwa Securities America, and Prudential-Bache Capital Securities. He is a graduate of Claremont McKenna College, with an honors degree in Economics, and holds an MBA from The Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth College.

20 Manufacturing Experts Build Up Your Industry Knowledge

• Charlie’s acquisition of Delta.
• Echo’s acquisition of Foxtrot.
