Building Better Businesses

By investing for the long term, we can help companies strengthen their businesses, grow their teams, and make a positive impact on their communities. We’re committed to our companies and helping them succeed.

Our Approach in Action

Gates Corporation

When Blackstone invested in Gates Corporation—a U.S. manufacturer with over 100 years of history—we put in place initiatives to help strengthen the company, from talent development programs to process improvements. Our efforts to measure and reduce energy consumption led to a one-third decline in Gates’s utility costs.

Phoenix Tower International

Since Blackstone’s investment in 2014, Phoenix Tower International has grown from a startup into a leading provider of wireless communications infrastructure operating in the Americas and Europe. Today, the company has more than 86,000 wireless towers across 14 countries and actively gives back to local communities.

BioMed Realty

BioMed owns and operates over 11 million square feet of life science real estate, supporting critical research by leading scientists and institutions. Since 2016, Blackstone and BioMed have transformed the company by concentrating its portfolio in locations with top-tier educational and research institutions and developing state-of-the-art lab office space, all while maintaining a focus on sustainability.

“We always try to improve what we own: to make companies better, help them grow faster, and enable them to hire more people.”
