PARTNERING WITH DOT FAMILY HOLDINGS
Supply Chain Experts, Driving Profitable Growth
We are not a private equity firm, and we are not your typical family office. At Dot Family Holdings (DFH), our sole source of capital comes from the Tracy family. Because our capital base is permanent and proprietary, we can make efficient decisions that are in the best long-term interests of our companies, free from any external influences.
Our proprietary capital base allows us to be flexible with transaction structures, enabling us to craft the right deal to help all stakeholders achieve their goals. Additionally, our limited use of leverage means no deal is dependent on financing and our companies are not overburdened with debt.
Everyone’s situation is different. We all have different plans, goals and definitions of success. Our goal is very simple. We want to bring companies into the family and help them grow for the long-term, Because of this, we employ a strict buy and hold (and grow) approach to investing in companies. We are not interested in making a quick return on our capital or siphoning companies’ profits.
Instead, we are focused on reinvesting in businesses, building real value and driving sustainable growth. The benefit of time allows us to minimize business disruptions and deeply learn our companies and their industries.
We are a team of entrepreneurs and operators with a deep understanding of what it takes to lead and scale successful distribution businesses. Underpinned by our background and unwavering commitment to trusted values, innovative solutions and shared growth, we are an ideal partner for entrepreneur- and family-owned companies.
“Our partnership with Dot Family Holdings (DFH) was a true collaboration. We executed a deal that worked for all parties. Today, DFH’s leadership is an invaluable asset to OmniCable. Their guidance facilitated our company’s continued growth and enabled our acquisition of Houston Wire & Cable (HWC), our largest competitor. Their experience, perspective, and passion for distribution helped us build a better business and expand our footprint with little to no disruption to our customers, employees, and business partners.”
