Impact Beyond Returns

As good stewards, we focus on and we have created strong investment returns for the owners of Granite Equity. In fact, we have significantly outperformed relevant public market indices and private company benchmarks since our inception. At the same time, as good partners, we focus on and we have created outstanding value for the associates employed in and the suppliers who support our companies, for the customers they serve, and for the broader communities that we operate in. Investment returns are necessary but not sufficient for a meaningful mission and an enterprise that is sustainable for 100 years. We believe in an impact beyond returns.
