Ironbridge Gorge
Ironbridge is a Toronto-based private equity firm with more than $700 million of assets under management focused exclusively on investing in companies in the Canadian lower middle-market. We focus on traditional industry businesses in the manufacturing, distribution, consumer products and services, and business products and services spaces. We recognize that growing mid-sized companies requires far more than money: we leverage our operating skills, diverse industry experiences and extensive network to drive value and accelerate growth in our portfolio companies.


We treat people fairly and with respect in all situations. We can be relied upon to live up to our commitments.


We have a team of seasoned operating and financial professionals with decades of experience. These professionals have built and managed small and large companies. We ensure that all portfolio companies have access to the full range of the firm’s experience and intellectual resources.

Value Added

We leave the day-to-day operations of the portfolio companies to management but assist them, as appropriate, in building the long-term value of the business. Our focus is on reviewing strategic initiatives, providing expertise to identify and evaluate acquisition opportunities and recruiting and retaining top-tier managers.

Flexible Structure

We recognize that the same solution cannot be applied to every situation. We try to understand the needs of the vendors or the companies that we are investing in and structure a solution to meet those needs.
