Our Mission

As an investment firm with global presence and Midwest roots, our mission is to invest capital and build businesses that create long-term value. Since 1961, we have raised over $5 billion of capital, delivered quality investments, and generated exceptional returns.

Our portfolio companies have ready access to the experience and resources they need to provide enduring products and services, strengthen the economy, and support their communities.

This is a shared mission among our firm and portfolio companies.


Resourceful. Approachable. Versatile.

“Our relationship with the team at NEP spans over several years, and they have been an integral part to our continued success. They have consistently provided us with the capital and resources needed for us to successfully pursue growth initiatives such as new plants and acquisitions.”
