After launching on January 2, 2019, American Industrial Partners (“AIP”), a middle market private equity firm, has held a first and final close on its seventh fund, American Industrial Partners Capital Fund VII, LP (“Fund VII”).

For nearly 30 years, AIP has executed its strategy of investing in North America-headquartered industrial companies, using the firm’s deep operational and engineering capabilities to transform acquired companies. Fund VII secured commitments from a globally-diversified investor base comprised of endowments, insurance companies, fund of funds, gate keepers, family offices, pension plans, and sovereign wealth funds.

The team at Acalyx Advisors, who worked alongside AIP to raise its fourth, fifth, and sixth vehicles, served as exclusive placement advisor for Fund VII. Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP served as legal counsel to AIP for Fund VII.
