About Us

+Carefree Strategic Acquisitions

Carefree, a Scott Fetzer company, is seeking to acquire private companies focused on the manufacture, distribution, and/or installation of shade related products in the residential, commercial, and/or recreational vehicle markets. We are eager to hear from business owners and executives of North American businesses that meet the following criteria:

  • Revenue between $10 million and $100 million
  • Demonstrated consistent earning power
  • A proven management team that wants to stay involved post-transaction


In accordance with the investment philosophy of our parent company, our approach is unique:

  • Unlike most private equity investors, we have no defined holding period for acquisitions; our preference is to work together forever.
  • Unlike most strategic buyers, the companies in which we invest will continue to operate independently with their current management team and culture intact.
