Calera Capital has been partnering with successful middle market companies for more than three decades.
Calera was founded to invest in middle market operating businesses on behalf of a family that had built and operated one of the world's largest and most successful private companies. From day one, Calera developed a deep appreciation for founder, family and management-owned businesses and embraced a commitment to building businesses of enduring value through supporting partner companies with strategic and operating insights and resources.
Calera is a form of limestone, a sedimentary rock used to build everything from the Great Pyramid to some of the most distinguished buildings in the world. The name reflects our focus on building strong, substantial businesses that occupy leading positions in their industries and that stand the test of time.
