Portfolio Companies

Founded in 1997, BlackFin Rods has been producing the highest quality, American-made rods in the sportfishing industry for more than two decades.

Elvisridge Capital acquired the company in 2018, and we added synergy by leveraging our relationships, experience, and expertise to find newer and greater retail outlets.

We enhanced manufacturing techniques to increase capacity, and we added important manufacturing and quality control processes — all the while retaining the hand-crafted point of difference the company has always been known for. Today, no competitor offers a more durable or better designed rod than BlackFin.

The result? …a fast growing company gaining not only revenue, but also reputation.

Founded in 1950, “SurfaceLogix” offers decorative and maintenance care products for pavers, stone and concrete surfaces. From factory floors to penthouse patios, from Disney World to luxury hotels, and from the Middle East to the Caribbean — SurfaceLogix coatings, sealants, and interlocking paver systems beautify concrete surfaces.

As a manufacturing company in the landscape sector, their products are distributed to contractors through Landscape and painting wholesalers/retailers, SurfaceLogix fits perfectly into Elvisridge’s portfolio. The firm’s strategy has been to continue growing distribution and to add complementary products to the business. Even against the challenging backdrop of 2020’s business climate, the company continues to grow.

The partnership with Elvisridge Capital provides SurfaceLogix with financial backing and industry experience critical to expanding its distribution footprint.
