About Keystone Capital

Keystone was founded in 1994 with the goal of acquiring high quality, market-leading niche businesses. Unlike a traditional private equity firm utilizing a fund-based investment model, Keystone operates more like an entrepreneurial holding company – utilizing the personal capital of its partners rather than outside third-party capital, capitalizing its investments with conservative capital structures, and supporting the management teams of its portfolio companies through active involvement of its principals. Keystone’s investments all share one thing in common – a mutual commitment by management and Keystone to thoughtfully and patiently build a sustainable, market-leading business. Keystone’s primary offices are located in Chicago, Illinois with a small office in Shanghai, China. Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn, LLP served as legal counsel to Keystone Capital.
