History • Community • Management •
LDI Ltd., LLC is a
private, family-owned company with holdings in value-added
distribution and logistics. LDI’s predecessor company, U.S.
Corrugated-Fibre Box Company, was established by Howard Lacy and two
partners in 1912 and grew to become one of the largest manufacturers
of corrugated cardboard boxes in the U.S. LDI, originally
known as Lacy Diversified Industries, redeployed the proceeds from the
sale of U.S. Corrugated in 1984 into a series of investments in
other private companies, marketable securities and real estate.
During the last 30
years, LDI has focused its resources on long-term investments in
lower middle-market distribution companies. We do not depend on
outside investors. Because our funding has no expiration date, our
investment time horizon typically exceeds fifteen years while our
management teams are provided the resources to increase market share
and build value.
LDI is guided by
the fierce entrepreneurial spirit, high integrity and active involvement of its
founding family. Our management team’s extensive strategic and
operational experience helps our companies maximize their potential
with organic growth and accretive acquisitions. Through our
disciplined approach to investing and improving business processes,
we have developed a culture and track record of solid execution and
generating consistently superior returns over several decades.
LDI currently owns
a national distribution business, a global logistics company, a portfolio of marketable
securities and an office building in downtown Indianapolis. One of
its two companies, Tucker Rocky, is based in Texas and is one of the
two largest distributors of motorcycle apparel, parts and
accessories to motorcycle dealerships in the U.S. OIA Global Logistics is based in Portland, Oregon and is an
international transportation firm, a supply chain management company
and a packaging business. OIA supports Fortune 500 companies
and middle market companies with its customized and rigorous
attention to detail. Tucker Rocky and OIA employ over 1,000 people.
