Full support of management. A key element of our strategy is supporting top quality management.

This is provided through alignment of interests and strategic support of internal growth, acquisitions and other operating initiatives. In all Sterling transactions, we provide direct ownership of equity, aggressive stock option plans and a bonus system constructed to match compensation with achievement of financial and operational goals.

Sterling has a long history of partnering with owners of family businesses.

"For me, trust was the most important element of choosing the buyer of our family's business. It was very important that I stay on and work in the business, and I wanted to partner with someone who would carry on my family's legacy. That was The Sterling Group."
– Xavier Grilletta, CEO, B&G Crane
