Superior Controls

“DFW was a tremendous partner for us during a critical point in Superior’s trajectory. The team at DFW was instrumental in refining the company’s growth strategy, prioritizing investments in key personnel/capabilities, and completing  a transformative acquisition. DFW’s collaborative approach maximized the talent and capabilities within Superior’s executive team, while providing key strategic insights and capabilities to help us achieve long term objectives.”

Rick Pierro, CEO

Superior Controls is an automation, integration, and engineering support services provider to clients with highly complex manufacturing operations primarily serving the biotechnology industry. Superior partnered with DFW in 2016 to provide the necessary capital and strategic guidance to enable the company to maintain its market leading growth trajectory while solving for several risks to scalability.

During DFW’s three year investment tenure, Superior (i) hired key executives to align administrative capabilities with the company’s size and growth expectations; (ii) developed industry leading recruiting/training processes to provide a scalable talent pipeline; and (iii) executed the acquisition of Banks Integration, providing customer diversification and a critical West Coast presence. In April of 2019, Superior was sold to E-Technologies Group, an affiliate of Falfurrias Capital.
