The Company

Koucar Management is a privately held, Michigan-based company with ownership in dozens of companies. Our financial and managerial resources bring strength to these entities. Our wide spectrum of business activities include: General Contracting, Construction Management, Land Development, Residential- Commercial- Industrial Construction, Property Management, Owning and Managing Hotels, Technology and Software, Hospitality, Real Estate Services and Equipment Leasing.

During its first decade, Koucar Management became one of the industry’s largest and most respected operators. In 2016, Koucar Management and its associated holdings became one of the largest construction companies in Michigan.

Today, Koucar Management is providing growth capital and other resources to its portfolio of companies, which collectively own and operate in excess of $250 million in assets. An investment strategy firmly focuses on expansion within existing industries brings new vitality to acquired businesses and lays the groundwork for new ventures compatible with Koucar Management recognized management strengths and ample financial resources.

By design and tradition, Koucar Management is receptive, accessible and able to react quickly. Layers of decision-making do not exist within our structure. We begin with a focus on what can be done to become more successful, not on how to maintain the status quo. Consequently, we are prepared for and are comfortable with long range planning horizons, in contrast to the quarter-by-quarter success meter so prevalent in many companies.

Our managers are encouraged to take intelligent risks. We are not averse to entering new ventures, approaching each opportunity on a case-by-case basis and assessing risk tolerance with anticipated reward. Reliance on management with industry expertise and retention of the talent in acquired companies are points of distinction in our growth strategy. Great people with extraordinary ideas relate well to our way of planning and allocating capital: “What do you need from us to grow and improve your business?”

Some might mistakenly equate our rustbelt origins as a handicap. On the contrary, our first-hand experiences enable our management to be knowledgeable both in the boiler-room and in the boardroom. Some of our peers might be larger or more visible on Wall Street’s radar screen, but few possess our skill set, our trust in one another and our rationale in looking beyond the balance sheet for the right individuals and the right ideas.

Our plan is clear. Our goals straightforward. The strategy is simple: INTEGRITY, RESPECT & KNOWLEDGE; motivated, skilled partners & employees; significant financial strength and stability; a willingness to look beyond conventional performance measurements and an untiring commitment to our customers. These are the hallmarks of Koucar Management. Our portfolio of business holdings benefits from the depth of our managerial, financial and systems resources.

At Koucar Management, an entrepreneurial culture encourages people to dream. Ever since our founding, we have viewed obstacles as opportunities, placed a premium on sweat equity and sought out affiliates and individuals who share our passion for excellence. Working together, we believe the best is yet to come.
