We have broad end market expertise. The key to analyzing many industrials companies is to understand each end market segment that utilizes the company’s products. Many niche component suppliers sell into diverse end markets such as: mining, machine tools, oil & gas, packaging, product manufacturing, etc. STEER Partners’ team has extensive experience analyzing demand drivers in each of these markets.
