Investment Philosophy


You know your business, and we want you to run it -- very well. Janel has neither the ability nor desire to run acquired businesses. We do have a network of experienced business leaders who can help as needed.

The Long View

When we acquire a company, we expect to hold it forever. Janel is building a family of businesses led by people who share our commitment to long-term value creation.


Exceptional players build exceptional businesses. Central to Janel's buy-and-hold philosophy is a commitment to providing opportunties and support to anyone with an ambition to grow.


We encourage our managers to choose to become owners -- we're relcutant to issue shares. This sets the stage for mutual, long-term commitment to building the per share value of Janel Corporation.
