The companies that Johnson Ventures has successfully acquired since its founding, reflect a unique and disciplined perspective. While others may simply look at short-term goals, we remain operationally focused on building and achieving long term value in our companies. These businesses have aspects in common that Johnson Ventures believes are important to stable and protected value: all reflect a proven business model that is sales and marketing driven; all have a diversified customer and supplier base; and, all have shown potential to become strong leaders in their focused market niche. Within the companies that Johnson Ventures owns or has recently owned, it is evident that each highly skilled management team is operationally oriented. Processes and production methods have been refined. Sales and distribution have been improved. And the skill sets and knowledge base of our people have been engaged to their fullest potential.
