WHO WE ARE
At SCF Partners, the secret to our success isn’t a secret at all. It’s people.
We build strong relationships with good people to help energy services companies grow.
The strength of our relationships stems from a shared commitment to a core set of values – integrity, work, tenacity, and discipline. Guided by these principles, we’ve been providing capital and strategic growth assistance to visionary energy entrepreneurs for more than twenty five years.
We’re in it for the long haul. Our financial partners share our belief that the soundest investments are those which grow steadily over time. We identify sectors that demonstrate solid, long-term growth outlooks, then partner with the best and brightest entrepreneurs and business leaders in those fields to help grow their companies to become industry leaders.
We respect the vision and commitment of the entrepreneur. Each of our portfolio companies started with an idea, a vision, a dream. And nobody understands that vision better than the entrepreneur. Our dream is to help them realize theirs.
We identify sectors within the energy services industry that have a long-term growth outlook, partner with entrepreneurial leaders in the field, and work together to build market leading companies.
We do this by:
- Partnering with experienced operational and business owners.
- Assisting them with additional growth through acquisitions.
- Developing these businesses independently until compelling operational reasons exist to combine one or more companies to create a sector leader.
