Soave Enterprises is a privately held, Detroit-based company with holdings in dozens of companies. Its substantial financial and managerial resources bring strength to these entities. These holdings encompass a wide array of industries including: metals recycling, real estate, industrial services, beverage distribution, automotive retailing, transportation, hydroponic greenhouse operations, and warehousing and logistics.
During our first three decades, Soave Enterprises founded and built City Management Corporation, a multi-state waste management and environmental services group. City Management, through Mr. Soave’s stewardship, grew to become one of the industry’s largest and most respected operators. In 1998, City Management and its associated holdings were divested and subsequently became a part of one of the largest environmental companies in the world. Today, Soave Enterprises is providing growth capital and other resources to its portfolio of companies, which collectively generate annual sales in excess of $1.5 billion.
The Soave investment strategy currently focuses on expansion within existing industries. We bring new vitality to acquired businesses and lay the groundwork for new ventures compatible with our recognized management strengths and ample financial resources.
The Importance of a Customer
“A customer is our most important visitor. He is not dependent on us; we are dependant on him. He is not an interruption of our work; he is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider to our business; he is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him; he is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.”
