WHAT WE DO
Morris Industries is a Lexington, Kentucky-based conglomerate that is reimagining the industrial economy. The organization works to identify disruptive and sustainable companies with unrealized growth potential, whose current ownership desires an exit strategy, requires capital, or needs a more experienced management team to continue its growth.
Steeped in the spirit of social enterprise, Morris Industries is built on a belief that market-driven innovation can support sustainability goals, drive profit, and equip businesses to solve society’s biggest challenges.
