We are proudly known for the following in every deal we do:
Platform Fuels is a subsidiary of Platform Capital, an operationally-oriented private investment firm headquartered in Denver, CO with investments throughout the United States and Canada.
Platform Capital has a unique approach to investing, that sets us apart from traditional private equity firms. We are not funded by institutional investors, but rather have been investing our own capital in companies and real estate alongside proven management teams and financial partners. As a result, our partners do not have to be concerned with cumbersome investment approval processes, reporting mandates, and limited holding periods.
Platform Capital focuses on building long-term value rather than emphasizing short-term profitability via excessive fees and a shorter horizon to an exit that can significantly increase investment risk. We partner with management in such a way that both Platform Capital and management benefit from improved operational and financial performance. In our view, doing what is right for a business over the long term simplifies a lot of decision making and significantly enhances the probability of a good outcome.
